Today I attended week 1 of a pattern cutting class at Bethnal Green Library, east London and I really enjoyed it!
Over 5 weeks I’ll learn how to create a pattern to suit my measurements. No commerical patterns will be used. I love this as I think it’s true dressmaking.
We were introduced to using blocks to make patterns and pivoting these for correct dart placement the waist, shoulder or bust line. I found this a little confusing, pivoting the wrong bit or to the wrong place. I hope to grasp this in the coming weeks!
The tutor and class mates are all lovely and keen to learn. I’ve got some homework before the next lesson which I must do if I’m to make a dress.
