Copy your clothes: Make a pattern workshop

76 Botany Rd
Waterloo NSW 2017
Unpicked Studio located within the Nest Creative Space

Saturday 30 October from 10am to 3pm

Always wanted to make copies of your favourite clothes so you can make them over and over? Now you can!

Next workshop -

Saturday 30th October - 10am - 3pm

Learn how to take a pattern from a garment you already own (without unpicking it) and transfer it onto paper! You'll learn the techniques that help you to copy clothes and understand the basics of pattern making.

You'll learn to:
  • understand pattern terminology

  • take a pattern from your favourite shapes

  • use pattern making equipment

  • add seam allowance

  • transfer clothes to a paper pattern

What's included:
  • we have all the tools you'll need but feel free to bring your own equipment if you'd prefer

  • 3m of pattern paper - more can be purchased if needed

  • calico - to cover 1 simple garment

  • tea, coffee and cakes

  • plenty of hand sanitizer and wipes

We also have a small selection of pattern making equipment you can purchase if you want to carry on at home after your workshop!

What to bring:
  • Your garment to copy - it might be good to bring a few options.

  • We recommend bringing a simple garment for this workshop so it allows you to learn the whole process and complete it with us, which you can then replicate at home on your other favourites clothes.

  • Avoid anything draped, with pleats or lots of gather. Although we can chat about how you'd do these at home. 

Please send us a photo beforehand to check that it's suitable for the class. You can email
