Oh, to fit like a glove

For me, September always means going and buying a new pencil case, new shoes and maybe a new backpack. I still do this even though I left school a while ago. Really I do.

This is also the time of year to knuckle down and get stuck into something new to carry you though the darker months. So how about learning how to make things fit? Most people don't fit standard sizing and there is a certain amount tweaking needed if you are sewing clothes for yourself.  If you have dreamt of designing and making your own clothes that really fit, then Pinworks is here to the rescue!

Due to demand, we have launched 'An introduction to Pattern Cutting' with a lovely pattern cutting genius called Christine. She used to pattern cut for Mary Quant, amongst others, including Oxfords very own Anabelinda's.

The course spans six whole days, spread out over three months, and covers an awful lot of learning. You will construct your own block from your own measurements, and then design and make a skirt from the block.

Just think...by Christmas you could be wowing all your friends with clothes that flatter and fit like a glove. You can then take great pride is saying " Oh, this little old thing? I just whipped it up myself...."

If you would like to know a bit more, or would like to book - just pop in or give us a ring at Darn It & Stitch.
