Pattern Cutting Workshops and Courses

Learning to pattern cut will allow you to create you own patterns to fit as well as adapt commercial ones.

A good introduction is our pattern hack workshop which allows you to create a pattern from an existing garment without taking it apart or damaging in in any way – great for you favourite items and vintage clothing.

The rest of the pattern courses are only suitable for those who have at least a years worth of experience sewing clothes.
