How to Copy a Pattern from a Ready-to-Wear Design
You know your favorite dress in your closet that you wish you had in 5 other colors or fabric? Or that skirt that fits you so perfectly, you'd love to replicate? A fabulous simple black formal gown that you'd love to have in blue? If you have existing garments that you LOVE, and you want to learn how to create a pattern from a garment so you can make more, this is the class for you!
In this workshop you will learn how to recreate a simple garment and develop your own pattern to sew up again and again. $38 per person.
Bring a simple top, tunic, dress, or skirt and we will show you how to copy it! We start with a simple woven cotton or knit fabric garment because garments with lots of seams and parts will be a steeper learning curve. Your test garment can have sleeves, pockets, gathers, etc., but please avoid garments with intricate collars and complex design details. In this workshop you will gain confidence so you can tackle copying more complex garments on your own.

We (or the instructors) set minimums on most of our classes. If for some reason a class does not “make”, you will be notified and will receive a full refund. For project-based workshops and classes, you will begin your project in class; however, depending upon your skill level and speed, you may or may not be able to complete your projects in the class time frame. You are always invited back to complete your project by calling the shop and scheduling a time.
