Do you have a favourite garment that you have bought but want to make a pattern from it so you can make more of your own? In this workshop you will be taught how to copy the garment using a tracing wheel, pattern paper and cutting mat. Also how to check that the pieces match so you don't have any discrepancies once cut out in fabric.
