On this practical course you will be introduced to the skill of creating your own blocks and dress pattern from scratch - and work to develop fitting techniques and a series of toiles.

This course is ideal if you are already familiar with sewing and using commercial patterns and would like to start developing your own garment design without the reliance on commercial patterns.

Whether you are already working in the industry, hoping to pursue academic study or are a home dressmaker seeking to improve your skillset, this course will help you develop practical skills in women's wear garment design and construction.

During the course you will:

- learn to take measurements correctly
produce a basic block
- draft a pattern from your own basic block
- practice lay planning
- practice fabric marking and cutting techniques
- discover how to assemble and fit a toile
- alter and adapt your own and also commercial patterns
- be introduced to techniques through group demonstrations, and benefit from one-to-one tutorials to aid your development.

Depending on your own individual progress you may potentially:

- make your fitted and adjusted garment in a top fabric of your own choice
create a second set of patterns based on your own design
- look at how to adapt a commercial pattern.

What will you gain?

By the end of the course you'll be able to create your own bespoke patterns and understand how to alter commercial patterns.

You'll have developed a range of professional skills and enhance your portfolio to widen learning or employment opportunities in the future.
