Making a Pattern from an Existing Garment June 2019

June 15, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:30 pm

Saturday 15 June 10am-4.30pm (will include a 30 minute lunch break) Tutor: Maryanne
$100 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 no 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 five.

If you would like to attend this class, please email us to let us know, including your name and phone number, and the date of the class. Click here to email us, or call the shop at 04 801 5850.
