Monkey see / Monkey do

Copy and recreate your favourite garment

How many times have you looked at your favourite garment in your wardrobe and thought.......

'if only I could copy this and make myself another version'

Well now you can, in the autumn we are running a 10 week course where you will take your favourite garment, transform it into a paper pattern and then recreate the garment.

Jo will show you how to:

  • take measurements from your garment and copy the pattern
  • draft a paper pattern tailored to your size and shape
  • add the shaping & styling details
  • plan the construction sequence ( you can create your own manual here)
  • construct the garment step by step
  • add finishing touches for that professional edge

Suitable for: people who are confident making clothes and understand garment construction, maybe you have attended some of our dressmaking classes.
