Clone Clothes You LOVE

make sewing patterns from beloved garments!

Workshop Summary

This is one of my most often asked-for workshops…
creating a sewing pattern from clothes you already own and love.    

Have no fear, no harm will come to that beloved hoody.    

But you know what’s extra cool?  Once you get the pattern down, you can shift a thing or two. I know, I know, you love that piece of clothing already, but let’s be honest, you probably always wished the sleeves were a wee bit longer and that it had a deeper hood…we can fix that.  

We’re superheroes after all!  

On Saturday, April 6th, join me for a 3-hour workshop (from 9 am EST to noon) on creating sewing patterns from clothing you already have.

It will be recorded, but if you can make it live, you have the opportunity to ask questions and show me the garment you wish to recreate and get my thoughts on it!  

As a student of mine, you can also share your progress and ask your questions in the days and weeks after the class, I want you to have ease and so much success!

About the class

  • Classes will be live and will be as close to an in-person workshop as possible.
  • I will be teaching the classes from my home sewing studio and will provide a space to learn that is open, kind-hearted and full of more good information than you may want!  ;-)
  • Classes will be recorded and made available to watch within 24 hours.
  • I will be available for questions via email or on our private community space.  Please ask me questions (it makes me feel important!).
  • You can join the classes via computer, tablet or phone, but the larger the screen the more easily you'll see what's happening.
  • and to that end, I'll be using two cameras to ensure that you can see what's happening!

Course Pricing

Returns / Refunds

There are no refunds or returns on live virtual workshops.  In order to have an intimate, personal sewing experience and have the kind of interaction I want us to have, the number of students that can enroll in the workshop is very limited.  Once you register for the workshop your space is held for you whether you attend or not.  

If you are unable to attend the live workshop, the recordings will be avilable to you as well as the community (for as long as it's live) and I always weclome email questions as you work on fit and construction.
