What you will learn

Beginners are encouraged to start with a simple project such as a tote style shopping bag before moving onto a simple garment, although Janet is happy to discuss personal projects with each student and advise on this. Students are able to work on a project of their choice and at their own pace and will therefore require a pattern and fabric in line with that. In fashion garments, the emphasis is focused on fit and finish; therefore a test garment (toile) is made in calico to perfect the fit, before constructing in fashion fabric. If your preference is to make cushions, curtains and other soft furnishing or craft projects, Janet will discuss this and the needed requirements with you.

What you will need

No need to bring, or even own a sewing machine as quality Janome DKS30 modern sewing machines are provided. Most new students are unsure of what machine to buy so trying out a class machine first is a wise move! General sewing equipment and haberdashery is available to purchase at the school. Pins, scissors, tape measure, unpick, sewing gauge and thread are generally all that’s needed to start with, in addition to your fabric. Calico is also stocked and advice provided on choice of pattern and size required.

Join our pattern fitting workshop

[caption id="attachment_1082" align="alignright" width="224"]pattern fitting after making full bust alteration to bodice pattern fitting after making full bust alteration to bodice[/caption] In this one day pattern fitting workshop you will learn the secret of how to alter patterns to fit you perfectly. No more baggy necklines, gaping armholes or badly fitting bust darts. Suitable for all skill levels.

Full bust alterations a speciality!

Full busted and struggling to make the pattern work for you? Being a 'GG' fitting myself, I have first hand experience of the problems this can cause and will guide you through the steps needed, including which pattern size to work with, based on your chest to bust ratio. You will be taught how to add extra to the bust measurement, without compromising the fit around the neck and armholes.

What you will learn

Bring along a pattern to the pattern fitting workshop for a blouse, top, skirt, dress or jacket. You will learn how to alter the pattern to your personal fit, following step by step guide lines. You will then proceed to make a calico toile (test garment) to check and fine tune the fit. Janet has fitted hundreds of students using this method. Satisfaction guaranteed in this highly practical workshop. Advice on choice of pattern size and a list of requirements will be provided on booking. No need to bring your machine as quality Janome sewing machines are provided.
