Pattern Cutting (Intermediate)

Draft your own Bodice Block

This 2-day workshop is a follow-on from the Pattern Cutting Beginners ‘Draft your own Skirt Block’.

The Bodice Block is a more complex shape to draft and fit, and I will explain some of the most common fitting problems and how to remedy them to produce a perfect fit. Once you have mastered the basic Pattern Cutting techniques, you will be well on your way to creating those wonderful designs that you have always dreamed of!

During the course, you will be taught how to draft your own personal Bodice Block from which you will make a calico trial garment (toile) to perfect the fit.
