Learn how to tailor your very own skirt block pattern and begin making tops and blouses exactly the way you want.
Course held on a single Sunday
Frustrated that you can never find patterns in styles you like, or do you find your body is not a standard size?
Why not learn the art of pattern drafting and make a bodice block tailored exactly to your measurements? Over this 1 day course you will measure yourself and draft a personalised skirt block, tailored specifically to your body.
Using your pattern block you can begin to draft your own patterns in any style you like. It's also a great tool for making adjustments to commercial patterns too
In this class you will learn:
- How to take your own accurate body measurements
- Draft a bodice block based on your own unique measurements
- Make a muslin or toile (a mock-up version of your pattern)
- Simple pattern adjustments and manipulations
Note: You will not make any actual clothes in this class just a muslin and the skirt block. You must have some experience sewing garments before taking this class.
