Description

This unique event is a combination of three very popular workshops, run together as an intensive, in the delightful country town of Coolamon.  By booking the three-day option you will automatically receive a 10% discount on the usual workshops fee.  Email me direct, for my personal recommendations for a place to stay during your visit to our beautiful town.  enquiries@studiofaro.com

We will be starting with Fitting Dress Patterns, where all students bring a calico toile of my Fitted Dress Block for a full day of personalized fittings.  All students need to purchase this block and make a calico toile before this session begins. I will demonstrate how to make changes to my Fitted Dress Block to improve the overall fit and balance.  By fitting your dress block you will be prepared for the following two days of Dress Pattern making.  You'll find more detail for this day of training here:  Fitting Dress Patterns - CWA Rooms, COOLAMON.  

The second day is focused on making basic Dress Patterns from your personally fitted block.  This introductory pattern making workshop for DRESSES will help students to develop their understanding of pattern making and the fitted dress block that is the starting point for nearly all the designs we wear.   This will include the knowledge of dart transfer, princess panel seams and bias cowl designs.   Because you have attended my Fitting Dress Patterns workshop and used my Fitted Dress Block to develop a personal fit block for yourself, then you'll be able to draft your first dress patterns to fit perfectly.  More detail here:  Dress Pattern Making - CWA Rooms, COOLAMON.

The third and final day is for Drape Dress pattern making, that involves dart transfer for creative designs for tuck drapes, gathered drape, and twist drape all using your own personal dress block.  The Draped Dress Patterns workshop will introduce students to pattern manipulation techniques that produce sophisticated styles for woven fabrics, using my Fitted Dress Block. This is where flat pattern making techniques meet creative drape.  More detail here:  Drape Dress Patterns for Woven's - COOLAMON.

If you're unable to make it to Coolamon for the full three days, you can book each of these workshops individually here:
