In stock


Date: Saturday 30th & Sunday 31st October 2021, 10am-5pm

In this class you will learn to make a custom bodice block that fits you like a glove. You’ll then work with Ellie to turn that block into whatever design you can imagine, whether it’s a bodice for a dress or a top on it’s own.

You’ll leave with a perfectly fitting bodice block and all the inspiration you need to become your own patten designer.

This class will be held at the Lisa Comfort Home shop at 319 Essex Road, London, N1 2BD.

Your classmates

We like to keep our class sizes small at Sew Over It, giving you lots of one on one time with your teacher and the opportunity to ask as many questions as you can think of! The current class size for the Learn to Pattern Draft a Bodice is six.

You can find our COVID Policy on teaching classes here.

Included in the price of the course

Pattern paper and calico to draft your pattern and sew up your toile, and all the sewing tools (sewing machine, scissors, pins etc.) that you’ll need on the day.

You will need to bring:

Just yourself! As there’ll be a lot of measurements taken, it’s helpful to either wear something closer fitting or bring a vest that you can change into on the day. Wearing clothing that has a closer fit means that you’ll get the most accurate measurements. We’ll ensure that there is somewhere private for measurements to be taken if you’d prefer not to do this with the group.
