Sewing Pattern Classes

Sewing patterns often strike fear into the hearts of sew-ers but with our help you’ll wonder what all the fuss was about and have a DIY wardrobe to boot!

Upcoming Chorley Classes


This course is suitable for those who have completed the beginners course and have a few projects/classes under their belt so it’s a Level 3 class*.

You will learn loads of skill including:

  • Understanding the jargon and terminology used
  • Understand all symbols and directions on a pattern
  • Understand different fabrics
  • The importance of a toile
  • Fitting the toile and adjusting your pattern
  • Pattern construction
  • Finishing techniques

The pattern is not included in the class and you don’t need to choose a clothing pattern if you don’t want to. We send out a list of our favourite pattern companies upon booking.

*Already have a rough understanding of sewing patterns but need a little helping hand? Our ONE DAY pattern class is perfect for you!

As always any questions just give us a shout

Top 3 Sewing Pattern Class FAQs

In short yes! Patterns can be baffling and intimidating to the beginner. This class will take you through all the stages of dressmaking from understanding your pattern, to making a toile (mock up) and then working on your finished product and making fit adjustments along the way!

It really is up to you! We have had dresses, pyjamas, teddy bears, handbags, to name a few – if it has a pattern and you want to make it then bring it along! If you have a little dressmaking experience and want to try out something a bit more challenging then bring it along and we can get stuck in!

Not at all. Your tutor will talk you through your pattern and some of the jargon and terminology used so you will have a full understanding of it. Help will also be given to get your correct measurements (if dressmaking), this way you can ensure you will be cutting the correct size from your fabric and placing your pattern on the fabric correctly.
