A block that can form the basis for the pattern cutting of shirts, shirtdresses & blouses
Do you find it difficult to find shirts and blouses that fit and flatter your body? It is a challenge many women face.
During this course, students will create a customised shirt block that is tailored to their size and body shape.
The course will include:
- How to create a shirt block with your body measurements
- How to create a pattern draft of a shirt with typical shirt design features
Students should be able to use this knowledge to create shirts, blouses, shirt dresses and various other designs that are a looser fitting.
There is no sewing involved in the Block Making courses, except when creating mock-ups. It is not necessary to know how to sew or how to use a sewing machine. If you have no sewing experience we can assist you.
All materials will be provided for in this course inc. 2 meters of calico for mock-ups.
Additional calico can be purchased at £3.00 per metre from The Fashion Loop.
Refreshments are available during the workshops.
