Beginners’ Pattern Cutting Course

If you can never find what you want when looking for sewing patterns, maybe it’s time to have a go at pattern cutting and design your own!

Pattern cutting is a valuable and useful skill which will enable you to draft patterns to your own measurements.  No more tweaking and fiddling around with bought patterns to get them to fit.

The first course starts with skirts.  There will be no more than 4 people on this course so you will get lots of help and guidance.

5 week course £85. 

Dates: Every Tuesday 12-2pm  |  June 26, July 3,10,17,24
