Pattern Drafting for beginners – with Ali

From: £160.00

Learn the fundamentals of pattern drafting, and design and sew a raglan sweatshirt using your body measurements!

This is a 2 day weekend short course on how to draft your first pattern!

The two sessions are 5 hours long – with a 30 minute lunch break on both days

You will learn to draft a basic raglan block to your own body measurements, then add variations depending on your style to personalise your pattern!

You can adapt the pattern to be a pull over or open with a zip or snaps
Choose a variety of neck, hem and cuff finishes – elastic, ribbed or classic
Add pockets, in the side or kangaroo, add patches and a hood!

Ali will then help you sew your garment in the right order, how to attach all of the bells and whistles you have chosen and zips if you choose.

MT will provide

  • Paper, pencils, tools and notions for drafting
  • Sewing machines, threads etc
  • Printed handout of the lesson plan

Will this class be suitable for me?

Could be?  You don’t need to be an expert but you need to be comfortable in basic construction.

Ali will take their time in helping you understand what you are doing and why. Keen attitudes all welcome!

Can I cancel my booking?

Absolutely. You are welcome to log into your account and cancel your booking for a full refund. You have up to 7 days before the start date to do this. After this period, all bookings are final.

What if I can't make a session?

You won’t complete the swimwear! Please ensure you are able to make all both dates before booking. Missing a session will mean you will fall behind and we may not be able to catch you up, as this becomes disruptive to the rest of the group.


What happens if I don't finish in the 2 sessions?

You probably won’t. Thats ok, all projects take different lengths of time for different people. You will be able to make a start on your garment, and you can finish this at home, or book some sewing time at MT to complete your garments.

What is the minimum age to attend?

We are happy to host well behaved people 18+ we need attentive and focussed students, we have a lot to get through x
