Knock It Off

In this class for intermediate sewers, we will show you techniques for re-creating a pattern from an existing garment. Bring in your favourite piece of clothing and we’ll make a pattern for it without taking the garment apart. In the second session, students will sew a muslin sample based on their personal pattern.

Please note : The chosen garment must match your current sewing skills. A guideline will be given to help you bring an appropriate piece to the class to ensure you can successfully master the technique.

This pattern drafting class is two 3-hour sessions,


Instructor : Kristiann Boos

Prerequisite : You should have experience sewing garments and using sewing patterns to take this class. You will be learning to draft a simple sewing pattern. Previous garment construction knowledge will help you to understand the terminology used in this class.

Please note : Students will be expected to do some homework in between the two sessions to prepare their muslin pattern pieces.
