Course aims and areas

If you have an interest in designing your own garments, sewing and pattern cutting this course will help you to develop these three areas.

Pattern cutting does not have to be complex or advanced to produce interesting and creative design led garments. Just simply moving a seam a dart can produce a visually interesting garment.

On this course you will learn different methods of pattern cutting; subtraction pattern cutting, transformational reconstruction pattern cutting and draping on a stand (basic). These methods are more intuitive, more 3D based and use less maths than flat pattern cutting.

You will be expected to draft a basic bodice block and this block will be used throughout the course.

You will not be making made to measure garments - this course is about developing and being creative in your pattern cutting.
