Professional Level Pattern Cutting Classes

Join our Pattern Cutting Courses to learn all the essentials of pattern making. They cover how to create personal blocks for a variety of garment types and techniques for block manipulations to create patterns for your own designs. The courses are suitable for home dressmakers who wish to make or adapt patterns for themselves to achieve a perfect fit. They would also be ideal for those wishing to achieve professional level of pattern cutting skills to work in the industry or set up their own business.  It’s also perfect for fashion students or graduates to add to their technical skills.  You can book stages separately or all together, and we can organise payment plans to pay in instalments if needed.

Classes are small so you are guaranteed one to one time with the tutors throughout your study. A certificate of attendance is given on completion of the course.

When you have enrolled on these courses we can give you a voucher to receive a discount at certain retail outlets to buy your own materials and equipment.


"Personal tuition in a small group meant that this course covered a huge amount of ground without losing us on the way. The tuition was professional and friendly, with the tutors sharing practical, personal experience as well as instruction. Attendees ranged from amateurs wanting to learn to those wanting to make a business in fashion; the mix worked well. I will definitely take further courses from Fashion Antidote."

“Thank you so very much for a genuinely fantastic and enjoyable time at Fashion Antidote, it has been one of my biggest investments and I am just sorry I didn't do it years ago!!! You are both stars. I got far more than I expected- the teacher was an absolute credit to the company, above and beyond. She was unbelievably attentive and it was hugely inspiring to be taught by someone with so much knowledge and a creative eye. I have learnt more from these courses than my 4 years in university, seventy thousand internships and three years as a professional in the industry!  I am massively grateful towards Susan for being so helpful and communicative when providing information and giving me flexibility on doing these courses, I really hope to be back for more courses and will definitely keep in touch. Thank you so much.”
