This course is designed as an introduction to pattern making, however more advanced students are invited to use the sessions to develop and improve their existing skills. Students will learn to draft blocks for a skirt, trouser and bodice (can then be made into a dress) using their own body measurements. Various professional techniques will be used to identify the appropriate modifications in adapting blocks into various styles. This will be incorporated into practical exercises, class activities, discussions and demonstrations. It is suitable for beginners, those who want to start their own business or looking to improve their fashion industry employment prospects. 

Students will be able to employ basic principles of pattern making and to construct patterns. You will acquire skills relating to the correct use of equipment, and learn how to take body measurements correctly and apply them to the flat pattern.

This course is for students who have some experience of sewing and using patterns. Sessions are suitable for beginners as well as individuals seeking to refine their skills for commercial purposes. Students who want to start their own business or improve their fashion industry job prospects are most welcome.
