Description

Thread Den's pattern drafting program is designed to enable you to be creating and producing garments designed by you. Learning to pattern draft will open up a world of unique style and creativity that you will have for a lifetime.

Our program is made up of individual courses: 

  1. The Skirt - Commencing January 2018
  2. The Bodice- Commencing April 2018
  3. The Torso - Commencing July 2018

We continue to develop and evolve the courses and may add in more options

Delivered and designed by My Best Friend Jen, our workshops are social and designed for modern guys and girls who want to develop a creative passion. Our pattern drafting program is ideal for individuals who have been sewing from commercial sewing patterns, understand the pattern markings and have a grasp on sewing terminology.  The workshop schedule for each includes pattern drafting lessons, not sewing sessions. To make the most of your course, you want to allow for time to make toiles of your drafted patterns.


Over the five week course students will:

  • Draft and fit a skirt block to your own measurements
  • Cover styles including: A Line, Pencil, Circle Skirts
  • Design gathers and wraps
  • Learn about darts and princess seams
  • Draft splits, pleats, gores
  • Enhance designs with different pockets, zips, other closures, waistbands, facings and more

We utilise a number of techniques; working on calico, pattern paper, cardboard, full size and in third size scale. You will build up a reference tool that you will have for a lifetime of pattern drafting.

Cancelation & Refund Policy

On occasion, Thread Den is forced to cancel a class due to low booking numbers. We really don't like to do this as we love to teach people to sew, knit and crochet, but if we don't cover our costs we can't run the class. In instances where Thread Den must cancel a class, enrolled participants will be notified 24 hours or more prior to the scheduled class and will receive a credit for a replacement class or a refund as required.

There are no refunds due to change of mind.

03 March 2016 • Pattern Drafting Course - Skirts ✄✄✄

This class is exactly what it says - intensive! I enjoyed creating my own skirt patterns from my own personal skirt block. Having attended other pattern drafting courses with Amy M, I was able to bring some of my earlier skills to this class, including being able to make a pattern from an existing skirt from my wardrobe (Copy a Garment you Love). I love how the courses at Thread Den create a knowledge and skill base that can be used in other courses at Thread Den. This course is as easy or as challenging as you want it to be, depending on the complexity of the skirt patterns you want to make. It was extremely well taught.
