Event description

Description

If you, or somebody you know, is keen garment maker, and practiced in the use of shop bought patterns, then this course may be ideal. Pattern drafting is the art of using maths and ratios to convert three dimensional measurements into a two dimensional diagram (a block) that can be used to create patterns for cloth cutting.

Learners will be introduced to:

  • Taking measurements correctly

  • Drafting bespoke blocks

  • Producing pattern pieces

  • Marking techniques

  • Toiling processes

  • Fitting processes

This 9 week course will run on Tuesdays at 7pm and will require a small amount of sewing work in between sessions. The first session begins 23rd Jan 2018. Classes are limited to a small group size of 6, so that delegates can receive as much hands on support as possible. This does mean that they fill up quickly however, so don't delay your booking! If this is purchased as a gift, please contact leannmariedesign@gmail.com for a downloadable and printable presentation voucher.
