  • Pattern Making at Handmakers factory

    Posted: Apr 16 2016


    It's getting closer to class time! Nichola of Handmakers factory and I came up with the idea of having an unconventional pattern making class, no A-line skirts here thanks.  We are doing a full re-style on the Aeolian tee, from simple, sculpted, minimalism to a classic peasant smock.  High glam or easy everyday wear the peasant smock is a wardrobe friend you will wonder how you lived without. Utilising the Aeolian's already fabulous shape and easy fit I will show you key pattern making methods and give you the skills and confidence to recut patterns.   With a follow up construction class you will be getting the full pattern to garment experience.  Volume, lengths and finishes to choose from plus skills for life. 7th of may  bring it on! The Pattern Fantastique Pinterest page has a mood board going to show you shapes and styling options for this design.  Follow me for...
