Always wanted to make your own designs a reality? Or do you have difficulty to get the right sizes in the shop or with pre-made patterns? Than this workshop series is great for you! With this 8 week course you can learn to draw all basic patterns in your own size. After we made your own size pattern we will be working on a prototype and make the piece fitted to your body. With these basic patterns it is possible to make all designs in your own size. We will also teach you different basic pattern drafting techniques in this course (adding a waistband, pockets, changing a dart). It is best to have some basic sewing experience to follow these workshops.

What we provide:
> 8 weeks of professional guidance by Ines
> All tools necessary (pattern drawing paper, rulers, pencils etc.).

> Coffee, tea & cookies
What you have to bring:
> Prototype fabric to make the prototypes (cheap cotton is fine)
This is the first course of the two. In the Pattern Drawing Workshop Series 2.0 you can go more in depth of pattern drawing. We will discuss variations (like special sleeves and types of skirt/pants etc.) of the patterns and the details (like pockets and closures). It is possible to follow the second course after you did the first one.
*You can also decide to get the same book, but than for menswear if you want to make menswear patterns.
**If you miss one or two lessons, you can catch up in the Sewing Cafe. But important: you have to cancel in time, which means, the latest one day before the lesson starts, otherwise it’s not possible to redo the lesson cost-free.
***There is no class on Sunday February 25, so we will skip this one week.
****This class is taught in English. Ines is also fluent in Spanish and French, so individual guidance in these languages is also possible.
