Had bad experiences getting patterns to fit?

Do you cut out a bigger size and hope for the best?
Are you itching to work on a pattern in your stash, but anxious about getting the fit right?
Then this single masterclass session is perfect for you!
How to measure yourself

This class isn’t for absolute beginners who have never sewn anything before, you’ll need to have sewn up a couple of simple projects before. If not try one of our Beginners Classes first

What you’ll learn-

  • How to choose the correct pattern size
  • Learn basic pattern fitting principles including adjusting the back, doing a full or small bust adjustment and lengthening or shortening a pattern
  • How to pin fit a pattern in the fabric. This system saves hours of un-picking!
  • Learn how to transfer fitting adjustments to the fabric and pattern
Cost: £45 (max 5 places per class)
Time: 3 pm -6 pm
Materials required: All tools, equipment and a practise pattern included – do bring along a pattern you might be planning to work with
Refreshments: Unlimited tea, coffee and biscuits provided along with an awesome playlist of great tunes

We reserve the right to cancel if there are less than 2 students booked.

Really loved this class. I feel finally confident at having a go at adapting patterns to suit me. Claire-Louise is a great, professional teacher and we had a fantastic hands on and practical session. Well recommended
