Draft your very own personalized skirt block, and then use it to design and draft skirt patterns to fit your body!

In this 3 week class, you will learn the basic principles of pattern making which will give you an understanding of how to draft and to construct patterns plus give you a better understanding of fit.

You will learn how to take your body measurements, apply them to a flat pattern and then create a toile so that you can make any adjustments necessary to your paper pattern.

This class is suitable for beginner pattern makers but you will need some basic sewing experience. It’s a great class for sewers who want to learn more about the construction and fitting of garments.
