Course Summary

If you’re ready to get started with pattern making, learning how to draft a basic bodice block to your specific measurements is a great place to start.  A bodice block is the basis to most pattern making involving your top half and can be used to make tops and dresses.  Combined with a sleeve block, it can also be used to make shirts, jackets, blazers and coats.
