From bodycon to sportswear to luxurious draping, stretch fabric has so much to offer the home sewer and fashion designer alike. In this two-day workshop, you will learn how to draft your own bespoke stretch block to your measurements which you can use to create unlimited designs. Alice & Lilia will show you step-by-step how to draft various styles from your block, looking to fashions past and present for inspiration.

At the end of the weekend, you will go away with bodice and sleeve block suitable for stretch fabrics and a variety of patterns and toiles ready to turn into the stretch wardrobe of your dreams. Alice and Lilia will also share some practical tips, giving you an understanding of the different types of stretch fabrics and how to work with them to get the best results and sewing tips for sewing stretch without an overlocker.
