Event description
Learn techniques of the ready-to-wear luxury fashion industry to make a pattern from an existing jacket in a 3-day masterclass.

About this Event

Do you have a favourite jacket that you'd love to make a copy of? Or a jacket you wish had longer sleeves or just a bit more room in the bust?

In this three-day class you will learn the techniques used in the fashion industry to make a pattern from an existing or vintage garment to create something new without unpicking or cutting up the original.

Alice will show you ways to alter the pattern to suit your measurements and redesign features of the jacket. Then use the pattern you have created to make a toile and test the pattern and fit.

Skill Level:

Suitable for people who have used commercial patterns before and would like to further their skills to creating their own patterns, and people who would like to become professional pattern cutters.

Class Size:

This class is limited to only 4 people, so you will receive high quality personalised teaching. If you book and cannot attend, please notify us immediately, as there is a waiting list.

Thursday 4, Friday 5, Saturday 6 March (10am-4pm) at Bukeshla in Fremantle.

Day One: Take a close look at the jacket details and the fit of the jacket. Learn how to trace each piece as you move from front to back bodice, sleeve and collar.

Day Two: Transfer to paper and look at how they fit together. Create a professional pattern and learn the tricks for perfect flow through between pieces, constructing vents and pockets, position the buttons/holes, straight hems and where to ease, stretch and mould for a superior finish.

Day Three: Learn to check the pattern and sew a toile of the jacket to check the fit.
