Understang basic Pattern Cutting

An introduction to understanding basic Pattern Cutting

Details

Maggi is a fashion consultant and illustrator based in Cockermouth and she is particularly interested in helping people understand their body shape and learn to modify dressmaking patterns accordingly. She will be able to answer all your fashion and dressmaking questions!

On this day you will be making a simple tunic shape to suit your figure type. This is a one day course where you get step by step instructions to create a very basic simple tunic, from which you can make other tops and dresses at a later stage in any fabric - no button holes, no zips - just simple creative fun, with lots of suggestions and advice on further adaptions at a later stage.

Maggi will encourage you to work with your own figure type to create stylish looks and perhaps act as a catalyst for change and allow you to re-frame the way you view yourself and your body. The second session will help you to begin simple pattern cutting, using a fabric of your choice in a very simple tunic shape.
