Draft and Sew Workshop Series

We are updating the Draft and Sew Workshop Series, hence it's not open for registration at this moment. Feel free to drop us an email if you are keen on a customised/private workshop on drafting or sewing techniques! 

 

Keen to learn drafting and sewing? Find it difficult to commit to regular timings? Want to choose the garment designs for your dressmaking workshop? If your answers are positive to the above questions, our Draft and Sew Workshops Series is perfect for you! 

 

The flexible and versatile course covers both the drafting and sewing aspects of dressmaking. You can choose to make any of the outfits from our "Draft and Sew" collection (which we will continue to add and update!). Most of the outfits are developed from the Bunka Bodice Block (Missy or Original) and inspired by designs from the Japanese drafting magazine Mrs Style Book. 

For each outfit, you will learn:

  • Convert block to garment pattern

  • Interpret instructional drafting illustrations to develop garment patterns

  • Fabric layout and cutting 

  • Sewing techniques required to construct the outfit

Upon completion of the course, you will bring home the garment made to your measurements, as well as the paper pattern for the garment. You will also gain the know-how to re-create the garments to different measurements on your own. 

The workshop series is suitable for both beginners and students with prior sewing experience

* We recommend attending 16-20 hours of session for each outfit, but you could choose to accelerate the pace and complete the outfit in a shorter time, or choose to come for more sessions to complete your outfit. For students who are confident that they can learn to draft and sew an outfit in less than the recommended hours, you can choose to sign up for our single session deal at $80 per 3-hr session.)
