Recreate The Pattern For Your Favourite Top
Maximum Class Size: 4
We all own an item of clothing that fits like a glove and goes with everything, wouldn’t it be great to make it up in lots of different fabrics?!
Level: This is an intermediate class, although there is no sewing involved during the class you will need a reasonable understanding of garment construction in order to take part and get the most from this workshop.
During this three hour session you will learn how to ‘trace off ‘ your favourite garment without opening any seams or deconstructing it in any way. With guidance from our experienced pattern cutter you will learn how to create an exact copy of the pattern pieces and add the correct seam allowances, darts and pleats etc. whilst your chosen garment stays completely intact. You will come away from class with a paper pattern (not a sewn garment) so you can go home* and make it over and over again...!
*Why not book onto one of our Freestyle Sewing Workshops for guidance from one of our experienced sewing teachers. They will help you to understand how to sew your garment together with ease, using the correct garment construction methods and order of work.
Materials: Bring an item of clothing to class that you wish to copy, your teacher will use an example of a top and talk through how you would go about copying this. Materials are included.
Please Note: We also offer a separate class for recreating the pattern for your favourite dress or your favourite pair of trousers, you will find this in the related products below.
