Introduction to pattern cutting

Event Type: Craft Course/Workshop
Make a simple tunic shape to suit your figure type. This is a one day course for a small number of people where you get step by step instructions to create a very basic simple tunic, from which you can make other tops and dresses at a later stage in any fabric, no button holes, no zips - just simple creative fun, with lots of suggestions and advice on further adaptions at a later stage.
