If we’ve whet your pattern-cutting appetite then do check out our upcoming online classes - the Summer schedule will be going up shortly - make sure you are signed up to our newsletter to be the first to know when it goes live.

In the meantime we are also doing an online class all about COLLARS for the V&A Academy - click here to find out more. We'll be giving you a pattern-cutter’s guide to the history of collar design, before delving in to show you how you can draft your own. The session will be packed full of technical tips, personal style advice, fabric choices and sewing know-how. 


We'd love to invite you to celebrate our 4th Birthday at our ZOOM party on Saturday 25th June - we'll be hosting a live pattern-cutting demonstration as well as games and prizes. Tickets are £5 and include entry to a raffle with all proceeds going to Ukraine. More details to follow soon via our newsletter and instagram!

If you are interested in the combination of fashion history and pattern-cutting you might also be interested in our collaboration with the V&A fashion exhibition program producing sewing patterns to accompany their exhibitions, and the best thing is - they are all available to download for free from the V&A website!
