Pattern Drafting Workshop in Birmingham UK – Saturday 27th Jan 2024 – Book Now

Welcome to Pattern Academy by Charnold. We are proud to be hosting our next pattern drafting workshop in Birmingham on Saturday 27th Jan 2024.

This pattern drafting workshop, based in Birmingham, United Kingdom, is aimed at people who would like to learn how to make their own sewing patterns for their body type using their personal measurements. By drafting your patterns using your personal measurements you will achieve great results!

Are you fed up with online classes and would like to attend an in-house, face to face workshop where you can actually have someone to ask questions and get real life help when drafting your patterns?

Would you like to get the best guide to help you learn how to draft your own sewing patterns?

The opportunity is finally here and above all this workshop gives you great value for money!

At Pattern Academy by Charnold, we will teach you how to draft your own self-made patterns, with your own measurements, which will make your clothes fit like a glove.

You will experience another level of fit when you can make clothes that are specifically made for your body measurements.

Also, maybe you’re fed up with adjusting standard sized commercial patterns, which may not fit your specific body shape and requires one adjustment after another there by wasting your time, then this pattern drafting workshop is for you, as you will save time drafting patterns to your specific measurements.

In addition to drafting your own block patterns, you can then take it further by using your patterns to create and sew many different fashion garments.

E.g: dresses, trousers, blouse, blazer, skirts and many more. Your opportunities are endless when you learn how to create your OWN pattern!

Christine signed up for our sewing pattern-making workshop in February. She had an interest in sewing but didn’t know how to make her own patterns. With guidance at Pattern Making Academy by Charnold, she learnt the steps and our tutors guided her. Christine made her own bodice block pattern, using her own measurements.

From that, Christine booked another workshop with us where she learnt how to use her bodice block pattern to make a dress.

Christine then cut out the pattern for the dress. After cutting out the pattern, she placed the pattern on the fabric of her choice, and cut it out. Christine then sewed the fabric pieces together, finishing her dress.

Here is a picture of the finished dress Christine made.

Here are Christine’s words:

“Before joining Pattern Making Academy by Charnold, I wasn’t very confident in sewing. I also desired to make my own clothes, however, I had no idea how to draft my own patterns for my body shape. I searched online and came across this pattern making academy and signed up. Ebere, the tutor, is very friendly. She hosted the sewing class, and there were many other students enrolled, and we all felt Ebere’s teaching and guidance was spot on. In various sewing workshops at Pattern Making Academy by Charnold, I learnt how to create my own bodice block patterns for my self, then I learnt how to use my pattern to create a dress for myself, which fit my body shape perfectly. I truly cannot get this fit anywhere else. Not at Zara, not even H&M. This dress is truly tailored to my body! I am so happy I enrolled at this course. I highly recommend it!”

  1. I recently attended the pattern drafting workshop Charnold. I really enjoyed the workshop and learnt so much. I was really pleased to go home with a bodice/torso block that I’d drafted to my measurements. This is going to be so useful for me drafting/ adjusting patterns for a good fit..
    We covered a lot of ground but the class was still relaxed and fun. Eby is a very friendly and patient tutor. I really hope to do more workshops at Charnold soon.
