- Pattern Cutting-- Dresses Tired of buying dresses that don't fit properly? Try this one day intensive workshop to have a go at pattern
cutting and draft the perfectly fitting dress block. At this workshop you will draft a basic dress and sleeve block and pattern and make a toile (sample). This workshop is only suitable for people who have made clothes from patterns and are confident using a sewing machine. It is NOT suitable for those who have never done any garment making involving darts or setting in sleeves before. • Class size limited to 4 people •
The above description was what tempted me to sign up for this day in August. I was so impressed with the result- a dress pattern to my own measurements that I can adapt, which gave me insight into how to draft my own patterns in the future, and the clear instruction and small class size- that I asked the tutor if she would run a class just for LDC members. The class starts at 10.30 in Brighton so you need to be prepared to travel there (we'll probably all meet up and go together by train as it is only a short walking distance from the station) and to work hard with only half an hour break for lunch. You will need to take with you some basic equipment that all dressmakers will have ( pencils, sewing thread, scissors etc, plus a couple of yards of fabric- calico or such- to make the toile. You will spend a fair amount of time standing as you will be drafting your pattern and cutting out your toile at a high work table. You can say you want to come but please send me a message about your dressmaking experience so I know you will be suitable.
