Pattern Cutting: Make a Bodice Block & Toile

25 Jan 20 — 25 Jan 20
Venue: Make Mee Studio
Do you hate how shop bought clothes or dressmaking patterns never fit quite right? Or do you want to have a better understanding of how patterns work and are created. Well, this is the class for you!

What you'll learn

We'll show you how to accurately measure the top half of your body and use the measurements to make a bodice pattern block to fit your exact body shape.

You will make your first pattern from it adding seam allowances and markings.

After lunch we will make a calico toile to check the fit and make any necessary adjustments to your block.

We will discuss how to adjust your block to make different designs and how to use it to adjust the fit of commercial patterns..

Who is this class for?
This class is for those with some sewing experience, who want to make made to measure clothes. You will get the most out of it if you have used commercial patterns before and you are confident on a sewing machine.
