About the event
In this workshop spread over 4 evenings you will learn how to copy your favourite items of clothing, without taking them apart! You'll learn a clear and easy method to use at home again and again, while taking in the basics of pattern drafting. We'll cover darts, pleats, collars, pockets, waistbands and all the other elements of a garment so that you can make patterns with all the details you love. You'll make a fully realised sewing pattern, ready to make your item at home, or work on a toile in class. You will need to arrange your supplies in advance and bring them with you, Check the supplies list below. As always, tea coffee and biscuits will be provided to keep us going!
