Clone and Make: T-Shirt



It's here!

We have extended our Clone you Clothes workshop, so students can now attend a full day to learn not only how to clone a pattern from an existing garment, but also how to cut it out and sew it up.

This workshop is ideal for anyone wanting to move into the 'Sewing Stretch Knits' area of sewing.

You can be limited to what you can do on a regular sewing machine with stretch garments.

To extend your knowledge, your host will show you all the techniques you can use, on your domestic sewing machine, to achieve a good finish, that still stretches!

It is advised that you email us with a picture of the T-Shirt you would like to clone. So we can advise you on the fabric type and quantity you will need to purchase for the workshop.

Due to the timing of the workshop (10am - 4.30pm) it is important that you keep the design simple. Especially if you're a beginner. No frills!

You can clone a children's, womens or mens T-Shirt.

Pictures of the T-Shirt you would like to clone can be sent tons once you have booked.
