Bristol Textile Quarter: Recreate Your Favourite Garment - An Introduction to Pattern Cutting

Sat, 17/08/2019 - Sun, 18/08/2019

This two-day workshop with Nina Redman provides a fantastic introduction to pattern cutting by showing you how to copy an existing favourite garment (without taking it apart!)

In two days you can expect to cover the following (see below) and have an accurate pattern of your garment and toile to take away.

- understanding the tools required
- tracing your garment on to paper
- modifications for seam allowances, trims and finishing
- fabric grain and minimising waste
- cutting your toile
- sewing your toile, including trims and fastenings fitting your toile, and advice on modifications and tweaks

Date: Saturday 17th – Sunday 18th August 2019

Time: 10 – 4.30pm (6 1/2 hours each day) with a 45min break for lunch.

Group size: 4 to 7 (we prefer to work with small groups to allow for more personalised supervision as you get to grips with your machine.)

Event location:
