In this course we want to create the patterns which you can use to create the perfect small wardrobe with the designs of you wishes. In a minimalistic wardrobe like this, you need the pieces that bring you most joy and offer the best fit for you body. If the fit and style fits you as a person really well, you can still use these patterns for years. You can always re-make them again in a new fabric!

– All tools necessary (pattern drawing paper, rulers, pencils etc.).
– Coffee, tea & sweets during workshops.
– Package of basic patterns in a general size (S/M/L), consisting of basic patterns for a skirt, top, trousers, jacket & coat. (if you choose to have this included)
In this course you will work individually, most of the time. In the lesson we will take your own level, process and experience in consideration. That’s why max. 6 people can attend. So someone that is more experienced in sewing techniques will focus more on patterns and the other way around. Every lesson you will bring your own design ideas (picture(s) and/or drawing(s)) to the lesson (and prototype fabric). Sometimes it is nice to do some homework in between. If you feel one of the pieces of the lessons doesn’t fit your wardrobe we will have a look together at alternatives (to really create your own perfect wardrobe!).
