Before the course I will be in touch to discuss the garment you are planning to copy and advise you with fabric suitability and requirments.

The first day is dedicated to creating a pattern from your existing garment. You will learn techniques to extract pattern pieces and ensure your pattern will work together.

 

On the second day you will be sewing your garment. We will be able to decipher the techniques needed to recreate your garment. It's called reverse engineering and it's a fantastic way to learn.

All the while there is tea flowing and snacks are on hand too.

Each class is held in a small group of 7 (max) so there is plenty of time for personal fitting and support.
