In this pattern making workshop you will learn proven fashion industry pattern making techniques to professionally draft the women’s basic skirt block using your individual body measurements for a personalized fit. You will draft, sew, and fit your personalized bodice block, which can then be used to create your own made to measure designs.
No previous patternmaking experience is necessary. Participants will leave the class with a skirt block drafted to their personal measurements and the knowledge of how to make a skirt block for any set of body measurements. This is the perfect class for aspiring designers and beginner patternmakers, or home sewers wanting to develop their own patterns.
Drafting paper and tools are included but muslin needs need to be purchased.

Please wear a tank top and leggings to the first class to ensure accurate measurements. You should also wear your regular and supportive under garments, and bring a calculator to the class.
Please note that the block developed in this class is not suitable for plus sizes (body measurements over bust 46″, waist 38″, and Hip 48″). This is about a size 18 in ready to wear.
