Come and learn how to successfully draft a bodice block to your own personal measurements with this hands-on pattern drafting workshop.

Hosted by experienced teacher Craig, this beginner-friendly class will help you learn all of the skills you need to create your own bodice block/sloper, which can be used to create many different designs, whether it be blouses, dresses, shirts, or tops.

Your teacher will begin by demonstrating the techniques you can expect to use before providing a handout as you begin your journey into pattern drafting. You will draft your bodice block on paper, then transfer it onto card to take home.

In this workshop, you'll cover:

  • Creating your own body measurement chart.
  • Taking body measurements correctly.
  • Drafting the bodice block.
  • Incorporating different bust sizing in the front block, while keeping a good fit at the back and shoulder.
  • Checking your pattern for fit purposes.
  • Book recommendations for using your blocks at home.

At the end of this workshop, you'll have a developed set of skills and all the knowledge you need to start creating your own patterns at home.



What you'll get
  • Your bodice block in card to take home at the end of the workshop.
What to bring
  • A calculator.
