Are you frustrated with standard commercial sewing patterns which just don’t fit? Do you want to be able to make your own designs to fit various body measurements and style?
Our Sewing Pattern Making course will teach you the basics of how to create your own sewing patterns. No more hunting through the commercial pattern books trying to find something that resembles the style you’re after!
You will have the option to either learn to design your own sewing patterns or to design a standard block pattern or to design a block pattern to fit you.
Learn How To…
You’ll learn to:
- correctly take your measurements;
- make your own basic block pattern for blouses, shirts & pants;
- design your own garment from your block pattern;
- alter the pattern for a perfect fit and
- sew your own garments.
- Sewing techniques are not taught in this course. Therefore, students are required to have sewing and sewing machine knowledge. For students who have not sewn before, it’s recommended that they first complete our Learn To Sew course prior to undertaking the Sewing Pattern Making course.
- You’ll need to own a sewing machine. Please speak to us if you don’t have one yet.
Be part of a lovely small group, where you’ll not only enhance your sewing skills, but be afforded enough individual attention from the tutor, and make new friends!
