One To One: Getting to grips with the commercial pattern


Book a date now – cost £27.50 Monday day times or Wednesday evenings


These sessions are aimed at giving all a better understanding of the commercial pattern. Therefore whether you are just starting out to learn how to sew using a paper pattern or have been doing so for some time this may well be the workshop you require. Here I aim to give the tips and know how in order to understand the language of the pattern. By the end of the session you will have a better knowledge of such things, like the signs and symbols used, cutting out a multi size pattern and how to work out the fabric requirements for your chosen project
