By popular demand, we are now running an Intermediate Pattern Cutting class.

Designed as a follow-on to our Beginners Pattern Cutting class, this class is a fantastic opportunity to build on your pattern cutting knowledge and learn some essential skills for successful dressmaking.

During the course you learn about:

  • Seam allowances
  • Darts on skirts and bodices

In addition, your toiles will be checked and corrected if needed.
