Clothes Making from a Pattern - Evening workshop

Do you long to make your own clothes but find it difficult to follow a pattern? This 7 week workshop will give you the skills to make your own unique garment from start to finish. You will select your own pattern and fabric and learn step by step from pattern cutting and making a toile through to the importance of hand finishing. You will be able to learn about different materials, design and patterns.

You will learn:

  • How to follow & cut a pattern
  • Make a toile
  • Take accurate measurements
  • Make alterations (if required)
  • Pin & cut the fabric
  • Add darts, pleats, zip and buttons
  • Accessorise for individuality (if time)

Additional Costs: You will need to provide a 'Very Easy' simple clothes pattern, ideally; Simplicity, Butterick or New Look please avoid Burda patterns for your first garment (one item please). You will also need to bring the specified fabric quantity (usually shown on the reverse of the pattern). Tools and refreshments are included in the price.
