About the Course

Do you have a favourite dress or top, or maybe the perfect pair of trousers that you’ve wished you could clone? Our Copy Your Clothes Class will help you create a pattern from your garment without you having to unpick your precious original!

Our expert teacher will talk you through the best methods for creating a paper pattern, depending on whether your garment is woven or jersey and give you tips and help with how to sew it up when you get home.

This class will help you to create a paper pattern so that when you go home you’ll be ready to sew up the garment. You won’t be cutting your fabric or sewing in this class – it focuses solely on creating your pattern.


Your chosen garment; it would be beneficial to bring a couple to choose from as the tutor can give you advice on which is the most suitable option depending on your level of skills and experience. If you’re not sure or have any questions, please Contact Us.
