Essential Blocks that form the basis for skirts, dresses, blouses, bodices
The bodice, skirt & sleeve blocks are the essential foundation pattern blocks from which many designs can be created, such as tops, blouses skirts & dresses. The blocks become your pattern cutting building blocks as they are measurements of your body, so one will find that garments created from these blocks have a better and more flattering fit as opposed to clothes purchased in shops, which are generic sizing.
The course will include:
- How to take body measurements
- Creating a block using the Flat Block Pattern Making method & Moulage (draping directly onto the body)
- Creating toiles (calico mock ups) of your blocks until the desired fitting is achieved.
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.
