Copycat Dressmaking (Make a copy of your favourite top)
I am so excited about this workshop! Is there a fabulously beautiful top that you just adore that you wear and wear until it practically falls apart that you would love to copy but dont know where to start? Well this is the workshop for you!
Using this technique I have made patterns from existing tops and re-made some of my favourites (see photo's below)
In this workshop we will make a pattern using your top and make a test garment (a toile) so we can check the fit and you can then use the pattern and the toile to make your top in your chosen fabric.
I will provide you with fabric for your toile - either cotton or jersey in cream. Just bring along your top and we will make a pattern.
You will need to have used a sewing machine before!
Our workshops start at 9:30 and finish by 1:30 and are held in our gorgeous garden sewing room in Tunbridge Wells.
Our workshops are small (limited to 2) so you get lots of personal attention to ensure that you get the best finish possible for your toile.
