bodice making workshop!

bodice pattern making workshop!

come spend the day learning how to draft and fit a darted & non-darted bodice to your own amazing measurements using a sloper. with this bodice, you can create any number of tops that can be worn as blouses or the top half of a dress. in doing all this fun work, you will go forth, knowing how to repeat this process for any other body you should come across in need of a perfectly fitted bodice with lots of style line options

by the end of the workshop, you will have a completed, notated and fitted bodice with style lines that you love! take home beloved bodice in both paper & muslin piece forms

typical workshop flow: 

morning meet and itinerary chit chat over coffee & tea and something yummy from the pattern house kitchen 

then we pattern!

lunch - included in workshop fee, locally catered and always vegetarian

over lunch you will be treated to a mini workshop that could include any number of handsy, crafty goodnesses (maybe how to shiburi fabric, concoct your own herbal salve, stir up a tonic remedy or cook something delicious - can also of course be sewing related)

then we pattern more!
