Service Description

Join me, Katie, for a day of pattern cutting and drafting up a skirt to fit your individual measurements. This is an ideal place to be dip your toes into the water of understanding pattern adaption. You don't have to have any experience in garment making. All I would suggest is that you have used a sewing machine and attempted to make something as basic as a cushion. The initial Skirt Block you will make will give you the perfect starting point to use as a quick way to make fit changes to bought patterns. I will provide materials to make your toile/mock-ups. There will be sewing machines and equipment, but if you have your favourite tools please feel free to bring them along.    A bit about me… I have a BA Honors degree in Fashion Design from Leeds Art University. Plus, a background of working as a Military Tailor following MoD specifications and as a technician assisting degree students to bring their wonderful creations to life! About the workshop… - Taking your measurements - Drafting Skirt block - Construction first toile/mock-up of the basic skirt toile - Make necessary changes to the pattern - Construction second toile/mock-up of the basic skirt toile - Go through how to use your individual block £55 for the whole day! I am happy to help spread the cost if you would prefer to pay in instalments before the workshop begins, but I would kindly ask that all payments are paid in full, 1 week prior to the commencement of the course. If paying in instalments is something that you would prefer then please email me. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at beforeyoustitch@icloud.com. Happy Sewing, Katie x
