Making a Pattern from an Existing Garment
March 11, 2017 @ 10:30 am - 4:30 pm$90
This class has one more place in it – as of 24 Feb 2017
Saturday 11 March 10am-4pm (will include a one hour lunch break) $90 includes class materials and tuition.
Your favourite shirt is falling apart; what to do?
In this one day workshop you will learn how to take a pattern from your garment. I will demonstrate the techniques and then you can have a go on your own garment.
You bring your garment – something fairly simple please, (no 27 panel coats, puffer jackets or garments with lots of frills) and you can make a start. You don’t have to unpick it at all, the process does not harm to the extant garment!
Please note we are making patterns, not garments. This class is suitable for sewists who can sew up the garment they have made the pattern for! A comfortable knowledge of using patterns, seam allowances etc is useful.
Maximum for this class is six.
