We finish the year with one class on saturday afternoon.

The class is 2 hours.
The class is on patternmaking and sewing combined. You can do sewing or patternmaking or both.

I will supply the patterns on your measurements for the students who want to do sewing only. I will bring 3 sewing machines and you are welcome to bring your own.

Pattern making is following the Lavigne method, taught in Europe and Paris. These two-hour workshops will cover the basics of pattern making. This class is for beginners and advanced: we will approach the basic styling of the garment.

I will supply a block on your measurements so the pattern you make will fit you. The classes are sequential but I will work with you individually at each session. For quick progress, regular attendance is always best.

When your pattern is finished we will make a toilet (a calico sample of your pattern). You can make it at home or come to the sewing class to sew it.

Sewing knowledge is not a prerequisite but would help you in drafting the pattern.

This class is ideal to introduce fashion students to the pattern making/sewing world or to anyone who wants to learn how to make clothes that fit.

Pattern Making is a rare skill. Get in touch with me if you are interested.
