This six week course will introduce you to the basics of pattern cutting for women’s wear. We will look at the bodice and skirt block and explore dart manipulation and style interpretation to create simple top, skirt and dress patterns. If you’re comfortable following a commercial pattern but are looking to draft your own patterns to make you’re own designs a reality this is the course for you. The six week course is £120. In the first session you will learn how to take your measurements to choose the best pattern block for you and we will look at making various skirt styles.
Some experience of garment construction is preferable but not essential and some sewing will be required at home between classes.
