Selwyn Community Education is based at Selwyn College, Kohimarama, Auckland.

This course runs over eight Monday evenings 7 - 9pm and courses start:
8 May 2017
16 October 2017

If you've ever had trouble finding that exact pattern or design you have in mind or if everything you try on never seems to fit, this is the course for you. Create your own design and pattern. Start from scratch with your basic measurements or use your own draft if you have one. Bring a favourite garment from your wardrobe as inspiration, a picture of a garment you would like to make, or a pattern you would like to adjust.

This course is suitable for those new to pattern making and those who would like to extend their skills.

During this class, students work with paper (supplied) and tracing violene (you can buy your own or purchase from teacher at $2/m). An average pattern will use 2-5 metres depending on the pattern and size.

Students can use their patterns to make up trial designs using cheap fabric or something you already have. If you wish, you can sew these together at home. It is up to the individual whether they make up their garment after the fit is finalised, but this sewing is usually done as homework due to time constraints.

Prerequisite: No previous pattern making experience is necessary but a knowledge of basic garment construction is needed. If you have basic sewing skills, this is sufficient. Please telephone the office on 5219623 if you need further information about this. We offer sewing courses for beginners and for those with basic knowledge who wish to develop their skills.

Our mission is to provide quality affordable and accessible lifelong learning opportunities for our to those with some sewing knowledge.
