Copy and re-make your favourite clothes
If you have a favourite item of clothing that you want to duplicate in different fabrics, This class will help you to do just that. Over 5 sessions, you will learn how to make a pattern without taking apart the original garment, then use that pattern to make a toile to get the perfect fit. Once you have perfected the fit, you will have a pattern to use and recreate the garment in new fabrics as many times as you like.
This course runs every other Saturday starting from the 25th January.
The course price includes
- Use of our sewing machines and dressmaking equipment- no need to bring your own
- Drinks and biscuits
- Maximum 5 per class - some previous dressmaking experience required
- Pattern paper and scrim for recreating your pattern
You will be working in our well equipped studio with Jane, a very experienced dressmaker who will be able to give you all of the help and advice you need to make your garments. It is a very relaxed and friendly environment where mixed sewing abilities are welcome and supported.
Please bring with you the garment that you want to re-create. Consider your current sewing ability and choose a garment that reflects this. If you wish to bring a couple of options then we can help you to choose which would be most suitable for the course.
