Patternmaking: Create Original Styles Using Pattern Blocks

My favorite part of this patternmaking intensive was experiencing the a-ha moments where I began to understand the core concepts and how they applied to different types of pattern styles.

Class Description

Anyone can sew their own clothes! It just takes a little imagination, some instruction, and practice.

Learn to create custom sewing patterns from a sloper (also known as a pattern block). Taught by professional patternmakers, in our Patternmaking Intensive: Create Original Styles Using Pattern Blocks students learn different flat patternmaking and dart manipulation techniques to create style variations on slopers. Students also learn how to develop linings and facings. In this patternmaking class, students gain confidence to experiment with their own sloper manipulations. Students can also use the skills learned in this class on their tried-and-true sewing patterns. This class is perfect for those who want to learn how to use a sloper and flat patternmaking techniques to create unique and original sewing patterns.

We provide sloper blocks for students who do not have their own. If you’d like to learn how to create a sloper to your body measurements, check out Patternmaking: Draft a Sloper for Your Body.

As part of our Learn to Sew classes, patternmaking instruction is taught with an emphasis on key industry skills and techniques to create garments that look well-made. All of our sewing, fitting, and patternmaking classes are both fun and productive, instead of just one or the other. We encourage anyone who is interested in sewing clothes to join us for our sewing classes, whether you are strictly a hobbyist or interested in learning clothing construction skills to bring your original fashion designs to life.

Our studio intensives are like taking a 2-day sewing vacation, and we’ve taught wonderful students who have visited us from all over the world. We invite you to spend two days working with us in our inspiring and friendly studio. After our patternmaking class you’ll start your week with lots of excitement to continue your sewing adventures at home!

Our Expertise and Approach

At Workroom Social, we teach adults how to sew clothes that fit their individual styles and unique body shapes and sizes.

We create a supportive and non-competitive environment in all of our classes. Perfection is never our goal in the classroom. Students should expect that their skills will improve with practice over time.

Our team of professional designers and sewists make garment sewing approachable, and it’s our goal to provide students with the confidence and knowledge they need to continue practicing sewing at home.

Our Belief in the Power of Sewing

Through sewing we build communities, stimulate creativity, and help improve women’s self-esteem and confidence by empowering them to sew the clothes they want to wear.

We work hard every day to promote a sense of accomplishment in our students and customers by reminding them of their abilities. Together we learn from each #sewingfail and celebrate every #sewingwin, no matter how small.

We use our shared passion for sewing to connect with those we might not meet otherwise, and we create opportunities for our students to develop relationships that go far beyond sewing itself.
