Pattern Cutting – Trousers

Draft your own Trouser Block

Have you ever wanted to find the perfect -fitting pair of trousers?  Why not come along and draft  a Trouser Block to fit your own body shape.  Then you can design a pattern for any style of trousers with the perfect fit!

The Trouser Block is a complex shape to draft and fit, with the crotch curve giving the most problems.  During this 2-day workshop, I will show you how to draft your own personal block which incorporates the shape of your own unique crotch curve.  You will then construct a calico Toile which can be used to perfect the fit.

I will teach you various Pattern Cutting techniques to enable you to transform your Block into patterns for your own trouser designs, which will include jeans and pockets.

On this course you will learn how to:

  • Record personal body measurements.
  • Draft your own Trouser block
  • Cut out and construct a calico toile.
  • Recognise and remedy fitting problems.
  • Develop techniques to produce own designs.
