Intro Patternmaking 2020

Intro Patternmaking 2020

Morning, Evenings or Saturdays, the Pattern making course is designed so you can make unique garments that fit you.  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 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. We supply most of the materials you will need for this course see the tab below for the full list of supplies.

 
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.
