Custom Block Drafting

Book Now (http://weteachme.com/l/qsR8kZEr)


Would you love to be able to produce your own designs from a pattern block - fitted just for you?  These workshops have been designed so that you can draft fitted pattern blocks. 

Each of the workshop dates is a different block - check the ticket name when booking.

What exactly are pattern blocks?

The foundation of all fashion design is a set of pattern blocks. A block does not have seam allowances, each time you draft a different pattern from your block you choose the seam allowances to add. 

These workshops are scheduled fortnightly and 2 or 3 sessions. Students will learn to customise the block to non-standard measurements and then create a toile to test and adjust the draft.
