PATTERN CUTTING COURSES

Enjoy classes in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere!

We provide tuition in bespoke pattern construction on a One to One basis or as a group course. Here you will learn how to take personal measurements, record them on the Measurements Chart and construct basic block patterns to fit individual figures. You will construct patterns and learn where to place each line for seams, darts, pockets, ruffles and other design details, giving you the skills necessary to know how each individual element of your garment can be used to enhance the body.

WHO IS IT SUITABLE FOR?

Courses are suitable for a complete beginner to someone with intermediate experience.

HOW WILL I BENEFIT?

Pattern cutting skills give you the freedom to construct, and create any design that you have imagined, and lifts the limitations of ready made sewing patterns. Have you ever struggled with getting a commercial pattern to fit you well or weren’t sure where changes need to be made? This course will answer all of those questions and more.

PATTERN CUTTING IS TOO CONFUSING FOR ME!

We simply do not believe this statement. The method and the training style we use for pattern cutting is simple to understand and can be used by a beginner. We assure you that once you complete one of our courses, you will enjoy making your own patterns.

WHY WOULD I PAY MORE FOR ONE TO ONE TUITION?

Learning in a One to One setting is so much more rapid and effective because sessions are precisely customized to your individual needs and targets in a way that cannot consistently happen in groups. Your tutor will be able to focus teaching on a particular area that you may require more help with. One to One tuition yields better results and many of our student’s complete pattern cutting courses before they reach the allocated course time. To reward your rapid progress and to encourage your pattern cutting skills to grow, as an added bonus we will include any other pattern construction you might what to learn that was not in your course program.

See What Our Students have To Say…

 

Pinterest

    • Creativity is seeing what everyone else has seen, and thinking what no one else has thought.

    • Sewing is an obsession, an occupation, a disease, an addiction, an absurdity, a fate. Its not a hobby…

    • Asking a seamstress to mend is like asking Michelangelo to paint your garage!

    • You can’t buy happiness but you can buy fabric. And that is pretty close!

    • Fabric is so addictive that it should be a controlled substance!

    DRESSMAKING CLASSES

    Tailor a course to your needs!

    Learn to sew and develop your dressmaking skills to create and finish your desired garments.

    You will learn the various garment finishing techniques including stitching darts, seams, pockets, tucks and pleats, waistbands, zippers, ruffles, cuffs, collars, facings, sleeves, linings, hems and closures. You will also learn how to choose a suitable fabric taking into consideration the design and trims chosen.

    WHO IS IT SUITABLE FOR?

    Dressmaking classes are suitable for someone who is a complete beginner wanting to learn basic sewing skills to make their own clothes, or for someone with intermediate experience who wants to advance their skills.

    HOW WILL I BENEFIT?

    We work closely with our students and tailor course programs to individual needs. We want our students to learn what they want to learn and not something that is just a part of the course and might not relate to your skill level.

    You can choose to work on one particular garment of interest, or create a list of garments you would like to cover. Why not challenge yourself and mix it up with pattern cutting This would enable you to learn how to make a pattern for the garment you desire and then learn how to sew it and bring it to life. We invite you to discuss your needs with a tutor so that a suitable course program can be prepared for you.

    WHY WOULD I PAY MORE FOR ONE TO ONE TUITION?

    One of the key reasons why One to One tuition yields such good results is because learning is a complex process and it doesn’t happen in the same way for everyone. We learn in different ways and at different paces.

    Learning in a One to One setting is so much more effective because sessions are precisely customized to the needs and targets of the student in a way that cannot consistently happen in groups. Your tutor will be able to focus teaching on a particular area that you may require more help with.

    WHAT TOOLS ARE REQUIRED FOR THE FIRST LESSON?

    • Needle
    • Thread
    • Tailors chalk
    • Pins
    • Measure tape
    • Fabric scissors

    A full list will be provided depending on your project.

    A sewing machine, overlocker, steam iron, mannequin and other studio equipment will be available for your use.

    WHAT IS YOUR TIMETABLE?

    Timetables for One to One lessons can be tailored to your availability, including weekends and evenings.
