We love a good pattern hack here at Sew Over It! Unlocking the power of 'hacking' aka altering a sewing pattern to add/remove details to change it's style, really opens up the possibilities of what you can create.

Taught by passionate pattern hackers, Layla and Rosie, our Intro to Pattern Hacking Masterclass will equip you with the skills and the confidence to try out some pattern hacking, and level up your sewing game. Using basic pattern drafting techniques, Layla & Rosie will walk you through the early steps of pattern drafting so you can have fun creating your own garments, without the work of drafting your own pattern block - let someone else do the hard work for you!

In this Masterclass, you'll learn how to manipulate darts, gathers, pleats, seam lines, princess seams, necklines, hems and more to create your very own bespoke patterns. Use these skills to dive in yourself, or watch some of the worked examples at the end of the class to get some practise in hacking a pattern from start to finish.
