Join our Pattern Making Class and learn how to replicate your favourite garments without the need for unpicking or altering them. In this class, you'll bring in a garment you love, and our experienced instructor will teach you how to create a pattern by folding and manipulating the fabric to obtain the panels and shapes of the garment.
The first session, lasting 3 hours, will be dedicated entirely to pattern making, so no fabric is required. If you would like to continue to sew your garment from the pattern you've created, you may want to consider booking a package of 4, 7, or 12 sessions in the booking calendar.
Our knowledgeable teachers will guide you on fabric selection and provide advice on any additional materials you may need to sew your garment. Please note that for beginners, we recommend choosing a garment without sleeves and collars, as these elements are considered more advanced. Discover the joy of pattern making and bring your favorite garments to life in a new and exciting way.
This class is suitable for beginners who have no previous pattern drafting experience. Previous sewing experience is a must, we recommend completing the Sewing For Beginners class and Introduction To Garment Making - Shorts/Pants class with us first before moving on to pattern making. Alternatively, you should have sewn at least one garment from a commercial pattern before attending this class.

I’ve been to Sydney Creative twice and I had so much fun both times. Sophie was so helpful and accommodating when I was trying to find time to come in around work and I learnt so much while I was there, especially with Lucy. She was so patient and explained everything so well! I highly recommend Sydney Creative!!
Great course.. has got me wanting to learn more. Sophie was a lovely teacher who explained things nice and simply. Would definitely recommend for beginners looking to get into sewing!
If my first workshop was an incredible experience because I learnt how to correct many bad habits when sewing, this workshop provided me with such an amazing level of achievement and satisfaction! Lucy for her first class was absolutely fantastic of patience and tips and advices. At the end, I managed to finish the short for my daughter and I was so excited about it that the very next day I did another one. Thank you so much for building up my skills and confidence, this is really very much appreciated. Take care and see you soon
It’s the second time I had the pleasure to create something with Sydney creative and it was both amazing experiences!! I am so proud of my handmade earrings, all my friends are envious and impressed . I learnt so much during the session, thanks to the amazing teacher Emily, she is patient and passionate! I feel confident that I can do it on my own after 1st session - it would just require to get the material required that can be bought directly at the studio so convenient!
Loved the silver jewellery and clay jewellery workshop! The teachers are very patient, fun and professional! Would recommend!
I had experience learn introduction sewing beginners making cover cushion Sophie very helpful teach me new skills about how to use sewing machine that was amazing so much fun thank you for your help 😊
I have had my new sewing machine for more than a year but had no idea how to use it and was a bit scared of it. After one class with Sophie that all changed. I made a cute cushion at the workshop under Sophie’s expert guidance - than came home and made a second one all on my own. I highly recommend this class for any newbies out there - so much better than watching a you tube video - with so many helpful, practical tips along the way.
Did an earring making workshop. Emma was wonderful. So helpful and such a fun course. Highly recommend.
Katey was a delight. I learnt a lot and will definitely book in to another course at Sydney Creative once I practice with my pattern making! By the way the space is very cool
Can highly recommend the jewlery class from Sydney Creative. Teacher was professional and had many years of experience in jewlery design. Also very patient! Very fascinating to go trough every step of designing your own jewelry. Fun activity to do with your friends. We went home with own pair of silver earrings! Keen for the necklace workshop!
