Pattern Cutting Course - Three Sundays from 15th Sept
Join us for 3 days and create a complete set of blocks and enter the world of pattern cutting.
We'll measure you up for a bodice, skirt, sleeve and trouser block so that you will be able to create perfectly fitting clothing over and over again. You'll learn how to overlay your blocks onto commercial patterns or use them on their own in your own pattern design.
The process goes through a number of mathematical steps that enable you to create a garment in calico that then can be fine tweaked if necessary so that by the end of each day you will go home with a block that works perfectly for you.
Learn how to move darts around and if you regularly need to do an FBA this will give you a bodice block that can be applied instead.
Dates and times:
Sunday 15th Sept 10am to 4pm
Sunday 20th Oct 10am to 5pm
Sunday 17th Nov 10am to 4pm
You need to be fairly experienced in making your own clothes and must have made skirts, tops, dresses and trousers previously to do the full 3 day course. You are also welcome to sign up to just one or two of the 3 days - see the separate listings for these.
