If you have done any dressmaking you would know how important it is to have the correct size pattern which actually fits you, to minimise the number of fittings and alterations and to make your dressmaking project less stressful and more enjoyable .
For this course you will need to bring your chosen commercial pattern you wanted to adjust.
We advise you to choose a simple design such as a shift or A-line dress.
On this course you will be shown how to take your own measurements correctly, to read your commercial pattern and how to adjust the pattern to your measurements.
When your pattern is adjusted, you will make a 'toile' using you new pattern from calico material and try it on, to make sure it fits you.
If there any more adjustments to be made we will show you how to do it and correct your pattern accordingly. As a result you will have a pattern for a dress which fits you perfect so you could use it to make more beautiful dresses in a future.
Cost : £70 + £5 for the calico. Length of the course - 6 hours.
