The choice of project is yours, perhaps you would like to make a garment from a commercial pattern or you may have a favourite shirt, skirt or dress that you’d like to make a pattern from. Amanda will guide you through the process of making or choosing a pattern, construction, teaching you new processes along the way enabling you to recreate that much loved garment or attempting something completely new.
Scissors,Pins, Tape measure, Sewing machine,Thread, Pencil.
If you’re using a commercial pattern you will need to bring:
Chosen fabric and any other bits of haberdashery needed for your garment.
If you intend making your pattern from a piece of your clothing:
The garment you wish to copy,
A roll of poster paper (the Range sell this) or if you prefer you can use spot and cross pattern cutting paper,
French curves if you them or a pattern master (don’t worry too much about this piece of equipment I will bring mine with me and you can decide whether you wish to purchase one at a later date).
Cream fabric to make a toile (a mock-up of your garment, this is to try out your pattern for fit) I use cheap sheeting or an old sheet would be great.
