Start creating your own sewing patterns straight away with this Live pattern cutting class with Sarah.


What will you learn from this class:

  • What pattern cutting tools you need and how to use them properly

  • How to get the best results from pattern cutting

  • How to manipulate darts using the pivot and slash methods (and of course what they are) 

  • How to create style lines and add gathers

  • How to finish your patterns ready for cutting out and sewing

  • Top pattern cutting tips and tricks along the way


What level is the class?

This class is ideal if you're new to pattern cutting or if you'd like a little refresher on the basics. I recommend that you have some experience of sewing patterns but that's all.


What will you get:

  • A 90-minute live session with me (Sarah)

  • Question time with me

  • An email after purchase on what you'll need for the class as well as our half-sized front and back bodice blocks to be printed prior to the class

  • A link to the Zoom class on the day

  • After the class, I’ll be sending over an eBook with step by step illustrations of the techniques from the class, my Pattern Cutting Checklist as well as a recording of the class


What you will need for the class:

  • Pattern cutting ruler if possible, if not a large set square will work or any 30cm ruler if that's not possible
  • A4 paper - Scrap paper is fine, we’re just going to be trying out ideas so it doesn’t have to be fancy
  • Paper scissors
  • Rubber (eraser)
  • Propelling pencil either with 0.3/0.5mm leads (or normal pencil if this isn't possible)
  • Sticky tape - you’ll want to be able to write on it so it’s best to use either narrow brown paper tape (1cm) wide if possible) or scotch tape
  • Zoom - Free video conferencing software, you can download it here

  • Laptop/computer/tablet  so you can easily see the class


The class will take place on Thursday 9th July from 3 PM to 5 PM BST


If you have any questions about this class or anything else, please email me at and I'll be more than happy to help.
