If you’re interested in learning how to create your own patterns then I offer a couple of different classes that are a great starting point for beginners!
I teach classes in person but if you can’t make it or would prefer the comfort of your own home then give an online class a whirl!
Kathryn was a great teacher. We all (of many ages, shapes & sizes) were able to construct a bodice and skirt block which can form the basis of jumpsuits, dresses, skirts & tops. Everything was taught using easy to follow steps and I came away with a block that I’m really pleased with!
The class was brilliant and inclusive.The information Kathryn provided was clear and precise, very easy to follow. Kathryn was extremely patient with all participants helping us to get the most out of the class. She has a wonderful teaching style.I would definitely recommend Kathryn’s classes to anybody including beginners and older people like me. Thank you for providing such a positive experience Kathryn.
The introduction to pattern cutting weekend course was an incredible experience and would I’d recommend for anyone who’s wanting to make garments that fit their bodies perfectly. I now feel I have the power to make any dress I want.
Kate was a brilliant teacher, she showed me exactly how to take my measurements and plot these onto paper to create the blocks. When I toiled them up I couldn’t believe how well they fit, best fitted garment I’ve ever worn. Kate also showed me lots of useful tips and tricks on how I could customise the blocks further to try different shapes including dart manipulations. Overall, an incredible weekend – I can’t wait to do more courses with Kate.
I have been sewing store bought patterns for around a year but decided I wanted to try my hand at creating my own ideas to fit my own body perfectly.
I am a complete beginner to pattern cutting and came across Kate’s classes on the Skillshare website, I enjoyed them so much so that I couldn’t wait to sign up for her Live T shirt pattern drafting class. I was not disappointed at all!
Kate is a fountain of knowledge, super friendly and patient. Not only is her way of teaching easy to follow, but it’s so inspiring that I can’t wait to see what other classes she has in store.
I feel completely confident that I can create a huge array of deigns, all thanks to project-patterns.
so thank you Kate, looking forward to the next class!!!
The online t-shirt draft class was brilliant! All of Kate’s instructions and resources were really clear and we moved at a good pace with pleanty of time for questions. The t-shirt pattern that we made is a great fit and we went through a selection of adjustments that we can make to the pattern in the class. I already have a few variations in mind! Thanks Kate!
