Modification of a Commercial Pattern to Fit Your Shape

Class Duration: 4 Hours.

This class is designed to help people who are making their own garments but are dissatisfied with the way in which a standard size fits their body shape. In this session a calico prepared from your commercial pattern will be professionally fitted to your individual shape. You will learn how to transfer the fitting alterations onto your pattern and will create a new pattern which fits you exactly.

To prepare for this class you will need to cut and sew a calico from your pattern (if your pattern is for a stretch garment you need to make a stretch toile). It is important to have sewn together your calico garment before the class so that it is ready to fit on the day.

Changing Styles Pattern Class

Class Duration: 4 Hours.

Learn how to make slight style changes to your existing pattern

In this class we will teach you how style changes can be made to any favourite pattern.

Keeping the same good fit you can transform your existing pattern into a new style.

Vanessa will demonstrate a few simple pattern changes and then the remainder of the class will be devoted to teaching you how to apply a style change to your own pattern. Sewing knowledge is required. This class is NOT SUITABLE for beginners. Bring an idea (or magazine picture) to use as inspiration for your style change.
