Clone Your Own Clothes Course

£75.00

Do you have a favourite top or skirt that you would love to make again and again? This workshop is for you. Come and spend a few days with one of our sewing experts walking you through taking apart your current garment, making a pattern from it and then re-creating it in new fabric. You will need to have a bit of a can do attitude and be willing to give things a go!

Day 1 we will take a look at the garment you’d like to clone, take apart this garment then draft a pattern from it ready to be sewn. Or if you really don’t want the garment taken apart we will try very hard to draft from the original but this will be a bit of a trial and error. We will also look at the fabric and discuss what you will need to best replicate your chosen garment so that you can get this in the time between workshops.

Day 2 sew you chosen garment using the pattern created from your original.

The clone your favourite workshop is aimed at capable sewers who are confident sewing garments but want to try something a little different.
