Live virtual learn to pattern make a basic fit block 1 to 1
Length of class 2.5 hrs
A fit block is the base upon which all garments can be drafted from. The fit block will be drafted using your measurement and will take up to 2.5 hours to complete.
This time will include drafting the fit block on paper and making a cloth toile of the fit block to enable you to make any adjustments. I will show you how to make these adjustments, it is good if you have someone to help you with the initial measurements and for the cloth part only (15 mins max) but this is not essential, I can help you virtually. From these adjustments on the toile I will show you how to transfer them onto the paper, and then how to manipulate this fit block into other styles.
Let me know if you require paper and / or cloth to be sent out. This is at additional cost, see instructions for more details.
For the toile you need to sew up a couple of seams, for everything to be finished within the timescale please have this set up ready. If you do not have a sewing machine then you can sew by hand, extra time can be given for this.
