Make a bespoke fit block that is suited to your measurements in this online, textile art class.
A fit block is a paper base from which all sorts of garments can be made from. We will show you how to measure your body, and how to then turn that it into a draft on paper.
Your teacher will be there to guide you at every step and is full of useful advice. If you've ever wanted to learn how to make your own clothes, this online class is a productive thing to do at home for your first step.
We will then make a cloth toile as a practice run for real garments. You will need a sewing machine to do sew up a few seams or you can hand sew, this will take a bit longer. Having a few sewing techniques under your belt already will make this much easier.
Once your fit clock is all done, you can turn it into all sorts of fun textile designs. Your teacher can give you some adjustment advice on how to manipulate the fit block into all sorts of styles.
Knowledge required
You will need to know how to sew or how to use a sewing machine.
What to bring
  • 1 metre of paper.
  • Half a metre of medium weight cloth (an olf bed sheet would work).
  • Pencil.
  • Ruler.
  • Scissors.
  • A bowl or cup.

My name is Claire and I am The Ethical Tailor. I am the founder of Moxie Craft and Couchman Bespoke an ethical tailors based in Canning Town. I grew up in Harlow, Essex with a creative mother and an entrepreneur father. After gaining a BA(Hons) degree in clothing design and tailoring from Brighton University, I ventured into the world and set up my company to combat the inequalities of the fashion industry I had been subject to.
By creating zero waste through pattern cutting, natural dyeing and sourcing the most sustainable cloth and haberdashery we aim to have very little negative impact on the planet and local people.
Now with 20 years of retail knowledge and 14 years of tailoring experience behind me, I feel confident in my ability to produce clothing that is timeless. Clothing construction is a great passion of mine that sits juxtaposed with a strong interest in the environmental impact of the clothing and textile industry. I aim to be a contributing factor in helping to reduce the environmental impact of the fashion industry whilst educating people about the issue through my workshops and trading fairly within the supply chain.
