Please note: This Workshop is run over 2 days
Would you like to learn how to make patterns for dress and tops that fit you like a glove?
Are you tired of spending hours adjusting patterns only to find they still don’t fit?
Then why not come along to a 2-day pattern drafting & sewing workshop, where you will learn how to make patterns in YOUR measurements the quick and easy way, and then sew a garment for yourself, using the pattern you’ve made.
On the first day you will make and try on a dress pattern, and then be shown how to modify the pattern into your chosen design.
On the second day, you will use the pattern that you’ve made; to cut out and sew a dress or top in your chosen fabric, with guided step by step sewing instructions.
Pattern drafting has never been easier to do; and you don’t need any previous experience to do this workshop.
This is a great way to learn the tricks of the trade, giving you the confidence to sew for yourself and even others. Positions are limited so don’t delay… register now.
Please note: Maria’s book and the template will be sold separately on the day and is not inclusive in the workshop.
