On the hunt for creative things to do in London? Come and learn how to alter patterns using the full bust adjustment technique with this clothing pattern class for beginners!

Commercial patterns such as paper patterns and PDF patterns are usually drafted to a B or C cup. If you are smaller or larger than this drafted cup size, you will need to do a full bust adjustment on the pattern before you cut your pattern out in the fabric.

During this workshop, your host will teach you two different techniques that will cover a princess line bodice style and a full bodice with bust darts. You will work on blocks and slopers that are your base size, manipulating them into your cup size. You will then be able to transfer this knowledge onto all your patterns at home.

In this workshop, you'll cover:

  • Size charts - choosing the correct size to use as a base.
  • Taking body measurements.
  • Understanding cup size and how this will alter your sizing and pattern.
  • Differentiating the front body pattern and back body pattern.
  • Creating a full body adjustment on a full bodice with darts.
  • Creating a full body adjustment on a princess seam bodice.

As the workshop draws to a close, your teacher will host a 15 minute Q&A session before you head home with your altered patterns and workshop notes, ready to continue crafting up a storm!

Please note:
This workshop is suitable for 16 years and above. All students under the age of 17 must be accompanied by a participating adult.
