Introduction to pattern making – Reading and adapting a sewing pattern

Reviews: Average review: 5 Number of reviews: (4) Level: Beginner Category:

Do you feel like pattern making is more of a puzzle than sewing? Would you like to know how to read and use a pattern to be able to adjust it to your size?
During this 3 hour workshop, Léa, head seamstress and pattern designer, will reveal all the secrets of pattern making.

We will learn different aspects of pattern making such as
– How to read a pattern and identify the different parts
– Adapting the pattern to your morphology
– Establish a cutting plan with or without sewing values
– Understand all the assembly steps

Skills required: none, except for curiosity and the desire to learn.

The price includes all necessary materials and lots of professional advice!

If you have a pattern at home, feel free to bring it along to go over it with Ann-Sophie. (We will not need the sewing machine for this class)

NB: the workshop time is indicative, and it may take longer for some participants. So we recommend that you don’t schedule an appointment right after!

J’ai participé à un atelier de couture avec Cécile, c’était parfait! Les explications sont claires, le rythme est bon et l’ambiance était vraiment plaisante! Je recommande à 100%

Cecile est une super animatrice et enseigne de façon claire et dynamique. L’ambiance était très bonne et ça m’a donné envie d’acheter ma propre machine à coudre et aussi de participer à son atelier pour confectionner des bobettes!

J’ai adoré cet atelier. J’en ressort avec pleins d’informations, de conseils et je me sens plus en confiance pour faire de la couture à l’aide d’un patron.
