10% of the profits from this class will go to a NHS charity to help all the front line staff who are working tirelessly to keep us safe and well. Thank you NHS! 

Being in isolation shouldn’t mean that you can’t still learn to make your own patterns!

Join me and a small group of other students for a live pattern cutting class and learn how to draft a T-shirt pattern from scratch!

This is a great class for beginners as well as those who have done some pattern cutting and want to broaden their knowledge.

This 3 and a half hour class will be done using Zoom, a video conferencing app which makes it possible for us get as close as possible to an in-person class atmosphere. 
I’m keeping the class size small so that we can all chat and you can ask as many questions as you need!

Date & Time: TBC
Duration: 3.5 hours
Maximum in class: 10

What you’ll learn:

  • How to draft a relaxed fitting T-shirt pattern
  • How to trace your pattern, add seam allowance and label it correctly
  • Basic pattern cutting terms & definitions
  • Great Class

    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.

  • A fountain of knowledge…

    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!!!

  • Great class, my new favourite t-shirt pattern!

    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!
