And the thought of its lifespan coming to an end fills us with horrific dread and makes your stomach turn inside out. But fear no more! This workshop will teach you two different techniques on taking patterns from your favourite items of clothing, without even having to unpick the original, meaning you can copy that favourite pair of jeans that make your butt look super good!! Bring along 1-2 garments to copy, depending on how difficult the item is and go away with a new skill and a paper pattern of your chosen garment!
