Adults, Beginners, Pattern Drafting Dress Block, Two Day Workshop
The Basic Fitted Dress Block
This course you must have already completed the bodice/basic block course, as your blocks will then be used to draft the dress block.
You will learn the importance of measuring the body correctly and accurately, learning about the key areas and points. These measurements will be applied to start drafting your basic fitted dress block and then transferred onto pattern paper. Once the basic fitted dress block is drafted, you will then be guided through making your ‘toile’- (a calico ‘mock-up’ of the basic fitted dress block) which will be fitted to your body and any adjustments needed will be transferred back onto the draft.
*Please note that if you are attending this workshop and have previously drafted the bodice block and the one-piece sleeve block, then you can bring this along with you to use to build on. This will give you more time to develop your dress block further in other areas by adding sleeves and developing basic facings and openings.
