Womenswear Pattern Cutting
Designing & Making Garment Patterns
The Fashion Loop offers stage by stage courses in pattern cutting – from beginners to advanced level. The courses are designed to teach students the technical skills to design & create garment patterns using the flat pattern cutting method.
During each course, students will work through exercises ranging from basic to advanced, which will increase their skill level & confidence. Each course is taught by an experienced fashion industry tutor using simple language & demonstrations to give an in-depth understanding. Class sizes are small – with plenty of hands-on help and one-to-one engagement with the tutor.
There is no sewing involved in the pattern cutting courses, except when creating mock-ups. It is not necessary to know how to sew or use a sewing machine. If you have no sewing experience we can assist you. Please see our range of sewing courses to help you get started with garment making & creating garments from the patterns you design on our pattern cutting courses.
The Pattern Cutting Courses will use size 12 blocks as a basis for the exercises. If students have their own blocks, these may be used. If you are interested in making custom fit blocks, please see our block making courses.
