WOMENS PATTERNS

Pattern making is an art form that requires precision, creativity, and attention to detail 

For a pattern that fits flawlessly, ensure precise measurements are taken throughout the process, and accurately trace smooth curves on transparent pattern paper, utilizing a French curve.

Additionally, it's crucial to true your pattern pieces and notch them correctly. Mark the grainline parallel to the selvedge or bias grain of the fabric and create a toile, to test the pattern's fit before cutting the final fabric.

DRAFT

Drafting a pattern requires some knowledge of industry pattern-making techniques, there are also some general steps to follow. Start with simple designs and gradually work your way up to more complex garments.

PATTERN

Pattern making involves creating a 2D template that corresponds to each piece of the garment, which is then used to cut the fabric and construct the garment. It takes practice to perfect high-quality patterns.

TOILE

Fitting the toile is an important step in the garment-making process. It involves testing the fit and shape of a garment on the stand or body before cutting the final fabric. It's important to check the fit at all points.

"Like many of you, I've always loved designing clothes. But for years, I stuck with dressmakers sewing patterns. I would spend hours measuring and cutting fabric, sometimes ending up with a garment that didn't fit properly, I felt so frustrated at times.


After I studied for my fashion design degree I honed in on evening classes in creative pattern making. Fast forward… I knew I wasn't alone in wanting to level-up my skills, that's why I created this online platform.
