August 2018: Simple and stylish patterns


For our summer meeting we were joined by Sarah Gledson of Made by Jack’s Mum. Sarah took us through her story, from trying to clothe her son in a remote Australian town, to running her own successful business making and designing clothes and patterns. We were all given a basic T shirt pattern and Sarah showed us a variety of ways to customise it. Armed with tracing paper and a pencil we learned how to lengthen or shorten, colour block and alter the sleeves. An ordinary T shirt became special when we added waterfall sleeves.  We ended the evening in teams where we raced to put together a digital pattern which the fastest team won. The lucky raffle winner also took home one of Sarah’s patterns. A follow up craft session is being planned so we can put these new skills to use.
