This course is aimed at students who enjoy sewing and would like to learn more about making their own paper patterns, creating their own designs to suit their figure. During the day the course will cover, changing dart positions, incorporating seam lines, gathers and flared skirts.

Students who have covered one of the previous courses where a block was drafted to fit themselves, can bring their own block. New students may use a standard size block copied from the tutor.

You will need to bring your own sewing machine.
