If you’ve seen the Great British Sewing Bee, you’ll notice that mastering pattern cutting is one of the most important skills when designing clothes. Pattern cutting courses are perfect to help develop basic techniques involved in the production of dresses, waistcoats, hats, shoes and even bras. On most of the pattern cutting courses, you’ll learn to draft patterns and construct garments using conventional and inventive techniques. At the end of most courses, you’ll walk away with your very own bespoke item. Whether you’re an amateur or professional, you’ll acquire the skills required in the industry.
I enjoyed this course immensely. It IS intensive - it covered a lot of ground in a week, but I feel that I now have the tools to be able to experiment confidently creating patterns from an idea, as well as altering those I already own. I look forward to attending further courses - Fashion Antidote is very friendly and personal. All very inspiring!
