Pattern Cutting with Mary-Louise

October 5, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Franklin's Beginners Dressmaking - Franklins Group

Imagine if you could make the perfect dressmaking pattern, tailored to your own measurements, now is your chance!

Adapting patterns to create style changes.  Mary-Louise will be teaching you how to use a block or pattern that already fits you, or using a basic block if it simply the design element that you are interested in, to make style changes.  Possibilities include moving the location of a dart, changing pleats, gathers, seamlines or a dart into tuck. Dividing the garment into smaller sections perhaps to create colour blocking and incorporating more style features.  This will focus on how the results and process can be used with commercial patterns. She will also help you understand which style changes are possible and how to do them.

A basic sewing kit will be required.  This class is not for complete beginners.

Tea and coffee will be in plentiful supply.
