Saturday and Evening Patternmaking 2019

Saturday and Evening Patternmaking 2019

“Can’t wait to start designing my own clothes!” Nadine Burgess – 2012

The Pattern making course is designed so you can make unique garments that fit you, but first you will learn to patterndraft in a standard size 12. We use full size pattern drafting so you understand the scale.

The results will astound you, using our own specifically designed template for bodice blocks, and developed course materials based on years of experience.

You will learn skills to enable you to create styles yourself rather than taking a ready-made pattern, and adapting it with less than satisfactory results.

You will learn the skills required by creating your own blocks and through tutor guided adaptions.

  • Basic Skirt Block – a number of adaptations to extend your imagination.
  • Basic Trouser Block – 3 adaptations.
  • Basic Knit Bodice Block – adaptations for ‘T’s
  • Fitted Bodice Block – adaptations for fitted shirts and dresses.

The Saturday Pattern Making course will take 8  weeks to complete Saturdays 9.30am – 2.30pm , there are two intakes this year.

The Evening Patternmaking Course is given over 4 months 1st Semester on Monday evenings. 6.30pm – 9.30pm, 2nd Semester Tuesday evenings.

  • When you complete the course you will receive a Certificate in Apparel Creation – Patternmaking – Level 3
