In this ONLINE workshop via ZOOM, all the information you need to prep for the making of your garments, will be broken down into understandable tutorials, focusing on the following elements:

 

1. Styles variations available 

2. Body measurements and sizing

3. Selecting the correct size

4. Do I need to make pattern adjustments?

5. Body measurements Vs finished garment measurements

6. Fabric consumption Vs width of fabric

7. Suitable fabrics - how do I choose a suitable fabric?

8. Stretch (knit) patterns Vs Woven patterns

9. Selecting a fabric with the correct amount of stretch

10. Notions / Haberdashery

11. Cutting your pattern to size

12. Marking and symbols 

13. Layplans - laying the patterns on fabric

 

We have selected two patterns from the main distributors of patterns, one from Simplicity and one from McCalls, so you can learn to read all of this information from each.

 

You will recieve handouts containing all of the pattern information you will need for the class, so we can work together in real-time.

 

So, come along and bust the brainfog of using commercial patterns!

 

Depending on the size of the class, we will have a 10-15 minute Q&A session with Craig at the end of the class, should you wish to ask about particular patterns or advice.
