Pattern Alteration & Toile Fitting


with Vanessa Borrell

Date: 13th October 2023
Time: 10:00 – 4:00

Want to get a really good fit when dressmaking? Spend a day with Vanessa learning dart manipulation, shoulder adjustments, how to stop gaping necklines and other techniques that ensure a personalised fit.
You will need to bring a ready made toile and the paper pattern that you have used which we will use to analyse the fit, identifying issues. Learn how to transfer your alterations to a paper pattern. Dependant on how you get on during the day there may be time to start cutting out your adjusted pattern 😊

This will be such a useful day. But please book early as places are limited.

“This was a fantastic course, in the morning we did practical examples of how to move darts and make  the pattern fit you better. We had all been asked beforehand to make a toile and in the afternoon Vanessa helped each of us to get a really good fit. After the examples from the morning we were all able to see what needed to happen to each others toile. I came home with a toile that fitted me perfectly, made the alterations to the pattern and made the dress. The course was worth every penny!”

“What a wonderful day with the lovely Vanessa.  All these years I have looked at pattern fitting books and glazed over but, a few hours with Vanessa and it’s starting to make sense.  I now have the confidence to attempt getting a good fit.
Thanks Zoë and Vanessa, more like this please xx “
