Do you enjoy sewing and creating garments at home? However you find the challenge lies in getting a perfect fit for your individual shape and size. Do you struggle to fit garments on your figure?
Our Make a Mannequin class will teach you how to create a mannequin that resembles your individual shape and size. You will solve the problem of trying to fit garments on yourself and instead find the process of fitting items on your mannequin easy, automatically improving the ability to achieve a ‘great fit’. Over the course of 2 days we will work together to perfect your ‘Mannequin Self’.
- Take exact body measurements
- Techniques to build up the mannequin
- Draping a calico shell
- How to fit garments on your mannequin
Level: It is necessary to have previous sewing and dressmaking experience, so that you have an understanding of garment construction and patterns. If you would like to brush up on your dressmaking skills please join a Dressmaking class.
Material: Please bring along a mannequin for use during the course. We recommend a cheap mannequin that is not adjustable and should be purchased based on your frame size (example, the mannequin must be smaller than your smallest measurement). You will need to bring along a good fitting bra for use on the mannequin, as well as 2 metres of calico and wadding (we have calico and wadding available to purchase). A sewing machine is not required.
