Description

The aim of this new format workshop (5 days) is to equip you with a personal-fit trouser block to enable you to work confidently in pattern making new designs. Using our industry-standard fitted blocks, you will develop a basic trouser block for your own personal fit and use. This workshop is suitable for students of all skill levels and of special interest to sewers and pattern makers who want to learn more about their own personal fittings. 

In the first day of training: students use a detailed set of their own body measurement to modify an industry standard fitted trouser block. All pattern alterations for personal-fit needs (Full/Flat Butt Adjust, Hip Tilt Adjustment, etc.) will be demonstrated during the session and carried out by each student where required. Taking body measurements and understanding your own Fit Rules is a crucial aspect of these workshops. Many of the standard fit alterations used in pattern making will be covered in a detailed workbook that is included in the workshop fee.

At the end of the first day of training you will leave with a first toile block pattern ready to be cut, sewn and fitted. This two-day workshop is spread over a 3 day period to give you an opportunity to toile and fit your basic trouser block and make the appropriate pattern changes. 

Day 2 and 3 are half-day Fit & Alter sessions to make sure you succeed in achieving an excellent fit.  As you work your way through the toile making process you will gain a greater understanding of the Fit Rules and pattern alterations required to get all patterns to work for you.

The focus is this workshop is on fit and balance and does not include individual garment or design detail. After completing this training, you will leave confident in your understanding of your dress block, and ready to begin basic pattern making to be able produce your own dress design patterns.

Day 4 will be your first opportunity to cut a finished trouser pattern with your newly fitted trouser block.  We'll be covering the leg shape of your trouser pattern, fly pattern pieces, pocket patterns and specialist seam allowances for sewing your trousers.

And day 5 will take your pattern making adventures to a new high when you get into some very creative trouser pattern making.  This'll include twisting your side seams, adding articulated knees, interesting pockets and performance details.
