Online Pattern Cutting

* * *  N e w   d a t e s   t o   b e   a n n o u n c e d   s h o r t l y  * * *

Our live online classes are dedicated to the drafting of bespoke cutting patterns from scratch. Based on actual body measurements, not pre-fabricated blocks, our tutors teach the art of cutting for the individual – yourself or a customer. They take you through illustrated instructions step-by-step and are ready to answer your queries during the live class, which is limited to four participants only. A recording is made available for download after each session.

The methodology is repeatable with individual measurements and students will be able to create their own patterns using the literature we provide with the class. Please note we work with measurements in the metric system.
Here is a testimonial from US sewist and menswear blogger Duane MacLeod about his experience on the class.

As the programme gains in popularity, students are joining from around the world, so we put together a schedule that works wherever you are on the globe. Linking up with Eventbrite, we make booking simple and secure.
Important: where classes are organised over several dates, p
articipants will receive event links for subsequent dates upon booking the first date.

Pattern Draft

To facilitate the online experience, we draft in small scale, on A3 / tabloid size paper. A metric measuring strip and set of instructions are provided with the course. Create full scale drafts for anyone in your own time.

What you will take away from each course:
