Pattern Cutting Course - Learn to make your own patterns that fit you perfectly (4 Fridays) starting 18th September
Fed up with clothes that don’t fit?
Then this is the course for you, we introduce you to drafting patterns from your own measurements.
It is suitable for people with some knowledge of sewing and garment construction. You will possibly have been on one or more of our dressmaking courses, and are ready to take your dressmaking skills to the next level.
On the course you will learn how and where to take accurate measurements from on your body and how to use these to draft a close fitting sleeveless bodice block.
This is the basis for fitted tops and the bodices of dresses. Once the block is drafted you will be shown how to: manipulate darts: add style lines and fullness (eg pleats and gathers), seam allowances and hems, in order to design your own top.
You will be given detailed written instructions to take away with you so you can create new blocks for other people.
If there is time on the day we hope to show how you can add a skirt to your bodice thus creating a fitted dress block, but this really depends on how we get on.
There will be no sewing on this course. All equipment and paper will be provided, but you may wish to bring along a notebook and pen.
This course costs £80.00
