Come and learn how to replicate the pattern of your favourite items of clothing with the help of expert fashion lecturer Craig at this beginner-friendly workshop!

Whether it's for sentimental reasons or just because it looks so good, we've all got that one item of clothing that's very important to us. In this class, you'll learn different techniques on taking patterns from your favourite items of clothing, without even having to unpick the original, meaning you can copy your favourite pair of jeans or that cherished jumper that's looking a little faded.

In this workshop, you'll cover:

  • Understanding the tools used in pattern cutting.
  • Demonstration of copying a pattern from your qualified tutor.
  • Drafting your own patterns from your garments.
  • Understanding measurements and seam allowances.
  • Finalising your patterns.

It doesn't matter if you've never tried pattern cutting before, as your teacher will be on hand with handy hints and guidance as you copy between two and three of your favourite garments.

You'll finish this class with a new skill and a paper pattern of your chosen items, ready to head home and get hands-on replicating your clothing!

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.
