Ever have garment’s that you really love? You wear them to death, and as it starts to fall apart or show signs of ageing, you head back to the store to buy a new one – and it's discontinued!! What to do!!

In this short course, you will learn how to take a pattern from a garment. This will include learning to navigate the tools required, seam allowances and just how you get that pattern onto paper without spending hours unpicking the original

This is the ‘tools of the trade’ – if you’ve ever encountered brands taking designs from one another Ariane is going to show you how they do it, and once you complete your first, you’re going to be hooked!

Sizing

Ariane takes great pride in well-fitting garments, ones that make you feel comfortable in your own skin - and with 17+ years of pattern making experience, we are confident you'll feel that way in your new pieces.

That Ariane often uses conscious grading* when grading her garment patterns into different sizes. Taking the time to consider if the standard +0.6mm increase on the bum cover of a bikini (for example) would be enough, or if our more curvier clients would be more comfortable with more cover? It takes time to perfect, and its time she feels is important to spend on her garments. For that reason, if two friends in a S and a XL bought the same garment, they may fit there bodies differently, to reflect their individually body shapes

Most of the fabric for our Swimwear and Sparkles has 4 way stretch which means that it shapes itself around the curves of your body beautifully. As we use so many different fabrics, we adjust the fit of patterns to ensure that a S/M/L etc all stay as true to size as possible, and recommend that you order swimwear based on your knicker and bra band size

Testimonials

I’m so glad I got this bikini top it’s like the holy grail - it stays on in the waves, my kids can pull at it, and a surprise bonus is super supportive and I feel super sexy wearing it. Absolutely LOVE it - thank you!

Nicole Jago

It was exactly what i was looking for in terms of festival wear that was modest for my curvy body type. The Cara Tops are great because they accommodate larger sizes while still seating the girls nicely.
The Jaimee shorts are cute and cheeky, and good for someone who doesn't want to show too much tummy but a bit of cheeky booty.
Overall, a really cute good quality set.
