Pattern Cutting Introduction
Saturdays, 11 and 18 November / 10:45am — 4:30pm

Led by creative pattern maker Michelle Lewis participants will cover the basic rules of flat pattern cutting. The 2-day course focuses on using fashion blocks to create womenswear garment components including simple sleeves and skirts. This process will include bodice dart manipulations, style lines and how to add fullness through gathers.

You will be taught to use a block, identify balance lines, take measurements from the body and make basic fitting adjustments, dart manipulation, pivoting and slashing to create style lines and design components such as gathers. You learn to work with seam allowances and pattern terminology and how to use specialist equipment. Demonstrations will be made on a sewing toile and you will make a lay plan for cutting.

No pattern cutting experience is necessary. This course is perfect for a beginner wanting to learn the principles as well as anyone who may have dressmaking experience but who now wants to experiment with their own patterns.

Equipment: Calico and specialist equipment is provided. You may want to bring metric tape measure, fabric shears, paper shears, fine steel pins, fine pointed tracing wheel, pencils (hb), felt tip pen.

Michelle Lewis has over 10 years of pattern making experience and has worked in London and internationally for renowned luxury fashion labels including Zandra Rhodes.

Price: £160 includes materials and exhibition entry
