                                            J.P. Ryan
You are cordially invited to attend a two-day intensive clothing workshop with J. P. Ryan, an
internationally recognized designer in the world of 18th century pattern making and clothing construction.
Each participant will work closely with J. P. Ryan, who will personally assess and pin fit their chosen
garment. At the end of the first day, each participant should have their own customized pattern, specific to
their shape and figure.
The second day will be devoted to cutting and construction, with JP providing insights and personalized
direction as needed. Additional fittings may lead to refining each participant’s pattern. Each participant
who arrives with a fitting muslin may very well leave with a garment ready for hand finishing. An
individual’s progress will be limited only by their aptitude and sewing abilities.
Participants in this two-day workshop are welcome to create either a Pet–en-l’air, Robe à la Française,
Robe à ľ Anglaise, or a Gentleman’s Frock Coat. Please visit for additional information
about each design. Participants are limited to these specific J.P. Ryan patterns in available sizes only.
As an added bonus, each participant will receive detailed materials via e-mail prior to the on-site
workshop. These Advices will include fabric suggestions, fabric resources and instructions on pattern
adjustment. In addition, J. P. Ryan will review scanned images of each participant’s selected fabrics. All
participants will be welcome to discuss their workshop needs and plans via e-mail after Advices have
been sent. On-line instruction will begin on April 5th.
Participation in this workshop will be limited to 20. Prior registration is required. Cost of Workshop:
$100.00 for 2-days of expert instruction, personalized fitting and pattern adjustment with J.P. Ryan. No
refunds after pre-workshop materials are sent.
Moderate sewing skills required. If you have successfully sewn clothing for yourself and/or your family,
can follow a commercial pattern, and make minor pattern adjustments to fit yourself and/or others, you
will derive great benefit from attending this workshop. Basic sewing and how to use a sewing machine
