Learn how to take a garment that you love and create a pattern from it. You'll also make a toile of that garment. Just think of it now... you could be making many versions of your favourite wardrobe item in all different colours! You'll have your pattern for ever.
You can expect to finish 1 pattern and 1 toile (mock-up) in the course timeframe.
Be easy on yourself and choose things that are simple for learning this technique. Nothing made from knit / stretchy fabric. Not too many seams or details in the construction.

Amy MacDonald is a lovely teacher, calm, patient and highly skilled. There were only 3 of us in the class so we got lots of attention. 2 of us were beginner sewers so we needed it! We learnt to draft a pattern by drawing around a favourite garment, which is not as obvious as it sounds, and then sew it up in a toile out of cheap fabric. The class is spread over two Sundays all day so we weren't rushed. Even working hard, I only managed to half-finish the toile, but enough to make a pretty good imitation of the original. I am very pleased with it and can't wait to make it up in beautiful fabric. I highly recommend taking classes with Amy. You will certainly learn a lot in this class.
