Intro to Pattern Drafting, Blouse Design-Along

By Judith Johnson

About

In this workshop, you will have a sample bodice template and will design a blouse. You will also be shown alternative design options, even if you don’t currently have a personal basic pattern block, you will see how easy it can be to design clothes for yourself.

The skills learned can then be used on a bodice block/sloper that fits you. Whilst this isn’t a sewing instruction class you will receive an illustrated document showing the construction steps. We will also look at what is needed to make clothes that fit.

Suitable for all abilities.
