Taster - Pattern Cutting from a Garment - One Day

Taster - Pattern Cutting from a Garment - One Day

Do you have a favourite garment? Would you like to make another? Find out how with this informative and practical Textile Taster. Bring along a loved garment and use Anne Kintominas' simple process to draft a paper pattern. Anne, a professional dressmaker and costume-maker,  will help you to work out the sewing instructions to make sewing a breeze - all this without damaging your favourite garment. Suitable for all levels. Just bring along a garment that suits your level of sewing experience.


Here are images from the day - It was a very enjoyable and informative day where each participant went home with a pattern!
