She’s back, our resident Craft & Create TV demonstrator Jenniffer Taylor, showcasing the revolutionary Lutterloh System.

The Golden Rule is a dress making system that uses only your Bust and Hip measurements to get the perfect fit every time.
Within this workshop, you will learn how to use this astonishingly simple system by:

  • Showing you how to use the system.
  • Plotting out the pattern design to paper correctly.
  • Checking your drafted pattern by constructing a toile (please bring 3 mtrs of fabric or a bed sheet to do this)
  • Tricks and tips on how to use the system correctly.
  • unfinished projects or guidance with construction.

A workshop for those who want to try out the system before buying it or if you already have the system but want a little helping hand.

Come and join the #sewingrevolution and book your golden rule session today!
