The hip smile and popular "Knock Off a Garment a.k.a. Copy Your Clothing" meet-up is back for an encore engagement. Join us as we learn to Knock Off our favorite garments in a hands-on workshop Saturday, March 20th from 4:15pm to 7:15pm. Knock Off Meisters Andy Nguyen and Carlota Garcia will teach the David Page Coffin method using foam core board, pins and paper. To participate:

  • Please sign up and pay.

  • Watch these two videos beforehand:

  • Bring to the session:

    • Your favorite (simple) garment that you would like to resurrect. Pick a garment with relatively few seams and darts and fewer pieces, such as a skirt, a plain blouse or jacket, etc. Don't worry about details on the garment such as pockets as they don't add any complexity to the pattern.

      Also, try to select a smaller garment (blouse, midi/mini skirt) as opposed to a larger one (coat, cloak, maxi skirt) because space is limited and the supplied foam core board won't accommodate a large pattern piece.
    • A pen and a long straight edge, 2-feet plus (ruler etc.).

      We supply all the materials you need: foam core board, Pattern Ease pattern "paper", pins, etc.

Andy will randomly choose one garment from the crowd and demonstrate the David Page Coffin method for all to view. Then he and his chaotic assistant, Carlota Garcia, will be on hand to actively help (if needed) as you apply the method with the materials provided. Expect to walk away from the session intimately acquainted (if not completely comfortable) with the method -- enough to continue at home.

The last "Knock Off" meet-up filled up in a couple of hours, so don't delay!! Sign up soon!
