In this workshop we will be taking all the body measurements needed to ensure a better fit of tops, dresses and skirts before you cut out your fabric.
Each student will be taught how to measure properly and take over 20 personal body measurements which will be used to check against a bodice pattern.
Demonstrations and in-depth guidance will be given on how to apply these measurements to the pattern and how to change the pattern pieces appropriately to ensure a better fit - before starting your garment.
You'll need to bring:
- notebook and pen
- plastic tape measure
- specs if you need them!
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
There'll be a break mid morning when you can purchase tea, coffee or cake in the fabulous organic cafe we have on site.
3½ hours (9:30am to 1:00pm)

Clearly explained with good handouts. Taken through all the measurements you need and when to add ease. Help with patterns that you are or want to make. That was an eye opener to see how a lady who is normally a size 14 needed a size 20 in some areas. Can’t wait to measure up my patterns.
