Clone your Clothes - Pattern Cutting
We've all got that item of clothing that's very important to us. Not for sentimental reasons: it just looks so damn good! And the thought of its lifespan coming to an end fills us with horrific dread and makes your stomach turn inside out.
But fear no more!!! This workshop will teach you different techniques on taking patterns from your favourite items of clothing, without even having to unpick the original, meaning you can copy that favourite pair of jeans that make your butt look super good!!
Bring along 2-3 garments to copy, depending on how difficult the item is and go away with a new skill and a paper pattern of your chosen garment!
1. Understanding the tools used in pattern cutting.
2. Demonstration of copying a pattern from your qualified tutor.
3. Drafting your own patterns from your garments.
4. Understanding measurements and seam allowances
5. Finalising your patterns
Please note: This workshop is a pattern cutting workshop, to create patterns from your garments. We do not make the garments. This workshop is not suitable for heavy, thick garments, such as coats.
Your safety is important to us!
We will now be reducing the size of the workshop from 6 people to 3 people per class, to adhere to the social distancing measures. As we are reducing the class numbers, it is important that students adhere and respect our cancellation policy, until we can get business back to normal, and teach at the required capacity.
On entering, we will have sanitiser stations for you to freshen up. All machinery, sewing stations, and tools you will be using, will be sanitised before you arrive, and between each session.
At your sewing station you will also have sanitiser wipes, should you feel you need to use them.
Our lavatories are communal, but they will be supplied with sanitiser wipes, hand wash and disposable towels
