Clone Your Favourite Garment
Saturday 19th October 2019
9.30am - 5.00pm
Have you got an item of clothing you absolutely love and would like it in another colour or fabric?
Join this exciting workshop run by Janet Poole, this years Sewing Bee contestant, and learn how to clone your favourite garment. Using pattern paper you will be taught how to prepare your garment for copying and use different techniques to transfer the shape. You will learn how to add suitable seam allowances and the order of construction to allow you to recreate a new garment from your pattern. Sew a test piece to check fit and make adjustments as necessary.
All materials and equipment is included. Students will need to bring their garment and a peice of fabric to use as a test. Garments should be a simple top (not trousers) which fits nicely.
7.5 hour workshop. Refresments provided. Please bring a lunch.
