If you’re interested in developing your sewing skills and trying your hand at dressmaking, this is the perfect tutorial for learning how to read sewing patterns. Designed for total beginners, the workshop simplifies the process and teaches you the essentials – ready for your first project!

Led by one of our Hobbycraft Artisans, grow your confidence in no time! Learn how to find your size, how to read the fabric, which fabrics you’ll need for each garment or item, how to decipher pattern codes, and how to lay a pattern and cut it correctly.

Once you’ve picked up those skills, with the opportunity to ask any questions throughout the workshop, you can then start practicing in your own time.

This is the ideal workshop for anyone just getting started in the world of sewing patterns.
