What you'll learn in this pattern making class:

This hands-on beginner class will introduce you to the world of Pattern Making. You will learn the techniques of a pro. Including how to correctly take measurements, tips and tricks for using different paper pattern making tools, and how to create a basic skirt block.

In this class, you will make your own skirt sloper, by cutting out and sewing up your very own skirt sloper. After the skirt is made, the instructor will do the fitting individually. You will then make adjustments by pinning it onto the body and transfer those changes/refinements back to the pattern. By the end of the workshop you would have a well-fitted skirt ‘block’ that can be played with and changed to make many different skirt designs. Even though wearing a skirt may not your thing, it is the easiest way to learn all the fundamentals of Pattern Making.

We will provide everything. It includes the Sewing Machine, Muslin, Zipper and all other necessary tooling. You are welcome to bring you own sewing machine.

Prerequisite: This class is designed for students who already took Introduction to the Home Sewing Machine.

I really enjoyed this pattern making class. Learning the correct places to take your body measurements was really helpful. Learning how to apply those measurements to a basic skirt pattern was even better! It was a small enough class that everyone was on the same page and received individualized attention from the instructor. I think some people were confused about the objective of the class before we started, so just to be clear- you will leave with a finished pattern, not a skirt to wear. Luckily, this is exactly what I was looking for!

My son enjoyed the class, even though it wasn’t completely what he expected. I don’t think he truly understood all it entails to create patterns. In addition, I guess they ran out of time, so they never got to actually create their own skirt. They just had time to make the pattern for it. However, overall, it was a good experience. Thank you, Michele Contreras
