Do you hate how shop bought clothes or dressmaking patterns never fit quite right? Or do you want to have a better understanding of how patterns work and are created. Well, this is the class for you!

What you'll learn:

  • We'll show you how to accurately measure the top half of your body and use the measurements to make a bodice pattern block to fit your exact body shape.

  • You will make your first pattern from it adding seam allowances and markings.

  • After lunch we will make a calio toile to check the fit and make any necessary adjustments to your block.

  • We will discuss how to adjust your block to make different designs and how to use it to adjust the fit of commercial patterns.

We will have a lunch hour from 1 - 2 pm. There are many places grab a bite to eat in the local area, The Talbot Pub is just a stones throw away, the vibrant Brockley Market is just around the corner on Saturdays, there are also shops and other cafes within walking distance we can point out where to go on the day!

The class was a joy to attend, i was nervous about attending because i had never done pattern cutting before and only did sewing as a fun thing. Jamie was an excellent tutor. Very calm, patient and gave you the attention needed as a beginner. I met other lovely attendees, it was a really warm and encouraging atmosphere and i will be attending my next class in february. It was a delightful experience that has helped my confidence in pursuing this as a passion. I highly recommend Makemee studios.

I had a great time doing my bodice with the help of Jaime. The location of the studio is absolutely lovely and relaxing, you feel like you are at home and the hostesses are just genuinly nice and friendly. The advices I got were great and I will be looking forward to go again to make my first garment in a long time with their support.

About your host, Make Mee Studio

Make Mee Studio is run by Tracey & Jaime. Two enthusiastic lifelong sewers (both sewing since they were 5 years old!) They love sharing their making skills with others, and have over 10 years of combined teaching experience working with adults and children. They offer sewing lessons, parties, alterations, makes and commissions in their Brockley, South East London based garden studio and are also available for external school and community projects.

Tracey is a very experienced seamstress who has been working in the business for over 18 years, she started as a costume assistant working for Grenada and the BBC going on to run her own bespoke label and then she began teaching 6 years ago and fell in love. She one of the most precise sewers you'll ever meet and always has a handy hint or trick up her sleeve. She loves keeping the studio neat, tidy and organised, everything has a place!

Jaime primarily studied Textile Design gaining a Masters from Chelsea College of Art. Her passion lies in sustainable fashion and textiles, she began teaching as an antidote to the endless cycle of fast fashion. Teaching people how to make and sew and fix and mend themselves can have a huge impact on how they consume and how they feel about their clothing. She is a self-taught dressmaker and loves encouraging people to make things unique, she's a magpie for anything, velvet, fluffy or sparkly and is terrible at keeping to Tracey's organised system!

If you have any questions, please contact Tracey & Jaime using the ‘contact host’ button on the website page.
