Pattern Cutting 2: Pattern Adaptations

Pattern cutting

Our Pattern Cutting 2: Pattern Adaptations course is for sewers, fashion and costume students who have basic pattern cutting knowledge.

It is an ideal follow-on course from our Pattern Cutting 1: garment blocks course.

Using basic garment blocks, you will explore a range of pattern adaptations by changing the blocks into different garment styles:

  • Moving darts using the bodice block
  • Suppressing a dart in a style line (seam)
  • Adding flare and gathers
  • style adaptations of your choice

We have changed the format of our Sew Short Course programme in 2023 to make it more flexible for you. Instead of specific course dates you can now book any of the courses as a Sew Personal session or a shared Sewing Bee workshop. The session is limited to one or two sewers giving you lots of tutor time.

Fantastic course. Jane is so patient and helpful. Hope to come back to do some more soon.
