Re-sizing patterns thedreamstress

This class will solve all of those problems, but teaching simple, easy methods for re-sizing patterns to your size.

Over the course of the class you’ll learn the basics of pattern re-sizing and grading, how to choose which method to use depending on the type of garment and the kind of re-sizing you want to do.

We’ll finish up by applying the techniques learned in the class to a pattern of your choice.

 

Using the methods taught, you’ll be able to take most patterns, and re-size them to your size.

Note that this is class focuses on re-sizing for the home sewer, and NOT formal pattern grading to industry standards.

This class is suitable for most sewing levels, from low intermediate upwards.

Sewing Level: High Intermediate.  Students should be familiar with pattern sizing, their own measurements, and common pattern adjustments they often need to make.

Materials: students should bring at least two patterns they wish to re-size, a notebook, writing implements, and a calculator.  All other materials will be provided.

Cost: $105 (includes handouts and 1m patterning tissue)

Teacher:  This class is taught by our awesome sewing expert Leimomi Oakes .
