Description

This course will provide you with a chance to study the core skills involved in pattern cutting for womenswear, using your own body measurements. This method is used for couture and bespoke garments, usually designed and produced for individual clients.

You'll study the basics of personalised block making, creating a personalised bodice and one-piece sleeve block. Working at your own pace, you’ll then make your pattern into a toile, and then fit the toile to the body, adapting the pattern accordingly. You'll leave us with a personalised bodice and sleeve block, an accurate pattern and a fitted toile.

The course will include:

  • Figure types
  • Customising for individual fit
  • Manipulating the blocks
  • Pattern altering
  • Fitting procedures
  • Measuring and compiling size charts

Level:

Beginners. You should have an interest in the subject area and a desire to learn but no previous experience is required.



Materials

2H and 2B pencil or automatic pencil, soft eraser, pattern master or Shoben fashion curve (these are both optional), measuring tape (with both imperial and metric measurements), scotch tape and tracing wheel.

Please note: on the first day of the course you will work in pairs and take your partner's body measurements. Please wear a fitted top as this will allow for more accurate measurements.
