Pattern Cutting with Mary-Louise a 2 Day Course – January Day 1
January 22 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm£95
Imagine if you could make the perfect dressmaking pattern, tailored to your own measurements, now is your chance!
Using your own measurements for hip, waist and bust Mary-Louise will be teaching you how to take a standard size block and adapt it to fit your shape.
Any fit issues that you currently find with purchased garments or dressmaking patterns will be studied to learn what changes to make.
These changes would then become standard changes that you can apply to any future dressmaking project.
You will make style changes to your block, possibilities include moving the location of a dart, changing pleats, gathers, seam lines or a dart into a tuck.
This will show you how the results and process can be used with commercial patterns. All will depend on the complexity of any fit issues and time constraints.
You will need to bring with you – 3 to 4 metres of medium weight calico (available in store) and a simple sewing kit.
This class is not for complete beginners.
Please note: This is a 2 day course the second day is Wednesday 29th January. The ticket price on this page will book you on to both days.
