Custom-Fit Patternmaking: Shirts & Jackets



In this workshop, you'll start with "standard-size" pattern pieces and adapt them to fit your actual body. In the process, you'll practice an under-appreciated step of custom clothing-making: the muslin mockup. 

This edition of the workshop focuses on the bodice and sleeve patterns, and will prepare you to make custom shirts and jackets for yourself, or to make custom patterns for others.

Pair the workshop with our printable fabric and standard sewing machines for custom-print shirts, or lasercut pattern pieces from leather and sew it on our industrial-strength sewing machine for a leather jacket that fits like a glove.

$50, materials included. If you have a personal sewing machine, please bring it. Basic sewing machine skills recommended.
