Clone your Clothes - Dressmaking session to copy your favourite garments!

Skill Level: Confident sewer who wants to expand their pattern and dressmaking knowledge
Duration: 5 hours
Cost: £95

Do you have something in your wardrobe that you wish you had bought 4 of or your favourite vintage dress has been worn to threads?
Does it fit like a dream and perfect in every way?
Do want to make another exactly the same but in different colours?
Then this is the session for you!

You learn loads including...

  • The principles behind creating your own patterns
  • Create a paper pattern from your original garment
  • Transfer pattern details i.e darts, pockets, seam lines etc
  • Pattern essentials, notches, grain lines & all the good stuff

  • Depending on time and the complexity of your chosen pattern there may be time to start a toile (mock up) to see how it all fits together - perfect to practise darts, pockets and zips! You'll have expert advice on hand to talk you through the sewing up process, be it at the studio or continued at home, and to answer any questions or queries you may have.

    Please note:
    An understanding of basic dressmaking is preferred. It is very beneficial to all dressmakers, of all levels, who want to learn how to replicate any garment. This session works beautifully with our Getting to grips with zips session and if you are still stumped by pattern markings our Reading Patterns session can help.
