Have you made a couple of things from commercial dressmaking patterns but wish you had more choice and a better fit? What if you could do your own designs, or copy your favourite clothes?

"Kat's course gave me the confidence I can actually make a pattern for anything I want" - Julia Miles, Business Coach, Hove

On this Beginner Pattern Cutting Course you will make a perfect fitting skirt pattern template ('block') to your own measurements, then adapt it to create many different styles & design techniques - any skirt you can imagine can be made from this block! You'll then design a skirt & make a full size pattern for it to cut out and sew in our classes or at home.

You can use the same techniques at home to make trousers, dresses, tops etc. You'll actually also find shop bought patterns much easier to understand and customise/alter with some pattern cutting knowledge under your belt.

Pattern cutting combines creativity and technical precision and some experience of making clothes. To get the most out of this course you should have made at least one garment before using a sewing machine, be able to use a sewing machine without help and be happy using a calculator for basic maths.
