Sewing School - Dressmaking - Pattern Adjustment Workshop

Product Code: SSPA
Availability: 3
* Available Dates
Price: £36.00



If you have a pattern that you just can’t get to fit, or don’t know where to start with tracing and fitting the pattern for your shape, then this is the workshop for you!

We will not make a finished garment, instead we will take time going over the elements of the pattern that affect fit, helping you adapt your pattern for your shape – sending you home with a pattern that, whilst not guaranteed to fit perfectly, will fit a lot better than an off the shelf garment - and you will have to skills to make any further adjustments necessary.

Don’t have a pattern in mind but want to learn about adjusting patterns?  We recommend using the Sorbetto pattern (shown in the image above) to learn all about fitting a bodice – we can send you the link before the class to download the pattern for free - the pattern includes long and short versions, as well as the option to leave the pleat in the front out if you prefer.


WHO:  Classes are kept to a maximum of 4 people. You don't need lots of experience, or even recent experience for this one, just an enthusiastic outlook.

WHAT:  We will trace the pattern, onto pattern paper (provided), adjusting the fit as we go.

WHERE: Courses are held in Duckington, just outside of Witney, or Witney itself.  

WHEN: Available dates are shown above - If you can't make it to the dates shown, why not consider signing up for a one to one or many course - click here to find out more - coming soon!


Payment is required at the point of booking your place on one of our workshops or sewing courses.

In you need to cancel up to 3 weeks before the start of the class,we will offer you the choice of transferring to another date, or a refund minus a £15 cancellation fee (if we manage to sell the place this reduces to £5).

If you need to cancel within 3 weeks of the start date, we are sorry but we cannot offer you a refund or transfer.  With less than 3 week's notice it is difficult for us to fill places and it isn't fair on other people who would have liked a place, had they had more notice. We can put you on a reserve list for a future date, and if we still have spaces 3 weeks before the start of a course, we will slot you in at no additional cost.

If you are unable to attend one of the sessions, for any reason, then you can choose to complete the missed work at home, by coming earlier to future sessions, or by booking a 'catchup session' - catchup sessions are mixed sessions run a minimum of 4 times a year, where people who missed part of a course that was more than a single session long, can bring their project and complete their work - the cost for a place on a catchup session is £25 per person.


If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us - email call 01993 700411, or pop along to one of our pop-up shops (click here for details) to meet us in person and find out more!
