This workshop is now full. If you would like to be added to our waiting list, please call the shop at (360) 738-6977.

Note: This class takes place on two consecutive Saturdays, May 19th and 26th.

Learn how to copy a garment without taking it apart! Making clothing typically begins with a pattern and ends with a garment. In this class we’ll reverse the process: starting with a piece of clothing you bring, you’ll draft a permanent pattern and start sewing your new version. You’ll also learn about fabric, grain, and drape, tailoring to your body, and essential pattern making tools and terms. 

Participant Materials & Requirements: Please bring a garment you wish to copy, the fabric you want to use for your new garment, and sharp scissors. You are welcome to bring several items and/or fabric types if you have questions and would like help choosing. Basic sewing experience recommended.
