This class has been canceled. We apologize for the inconvenience.


Have a garment you love so much it has worn out? Or you want more in multiple colors or fabrics? Join us to clone your clothing to create a pattern you can make again and again.

Learn how to analyze your garment’s assembly, determine what pattern pieces you need and what they should look like and create a new pattern. Then cut the pattern from your new fabric and, finally, assemble your new garment.

Chosen garments should be woven and fit you reasonably well. Please note: your existing garment may be damaged beyond repair during its analysis.

Students meet with Jackie via Zoom on Jan. 15 to discuss the clothing you’d like to clone and go over any other questions you might have.

  • Jan. 15 Zoom session: The garment you want to copy
  • Jan. 22 in the Fiber Studio: The garment you will copy (washed and pre-approved in your Zoom session), a 24-inch ruler, a French curve (see more here) and a soft pencil or your preferred marking tool for drawing your pattern onto the supplied pattern material
  • Jan. 29 and Feb. 5 in the Fiber Studio: Your new pattern, fabric for your new garment, thread, any other supplies you need for your new garment, and your sewing machine and basic tools  (or reserve one of BARN’s machines)
