This is run as a weekend course over two weekends. The pattern cutting courses are for experienced and confident dressmakers and those who have completed the skirt pattern cutting workshops. Using your own body measurements, create a close fitting bodice and sleeve pattern to your exact figure type. You will make a mock up in calico called a toile, and this will be checked for correct fitting to your body type and personal measurements.
It is strongly recommended that you learn how to make the skirt block pattern before undertaking the more difficult bodice and sleeve patterns.
This course is also suitable for A level Dress & Textiles students and undergraduates studying for Fashion degree courses needing more tuition on pattern cutting & design development
Course fee for the Bodice and Sleeve 4 day course is £140.00 including materials for the pattern drafting and toile. Autumn dates yet to be confirmed with venue.
Next date for the Skirt Pattern Cutting course is Weekend of September 24th and 25th, click on relevant course tab for further details.
