    Your Questions Answered

    A dress block in sizes 6 - 20
    A half-scale block to practice with
    Six double sided cards with full instructions for 6 styles: 2 x Beginners, 2 x Intermediate, 2 x Confident

    plus 4 x sleeves
    PAPTIC® Trace & Sew paper
    Calico (to toile your pattern block)

    Is the Kit suitable for all abilities?

    The Kit is suitable for Beginners Level 1, Intermediates Level 2, and more Confident students Level 3.

    Why does the full kit include instructions for all abilities?

    Everybody learns at a different pace and I felt it was important to provide a kit that enables self learning and differentiation. A beginner, with an interest in pattern cutting, will be able to follow our simplified instructions. They will then gain confidence and progress to the second item in the beginners section. Think of the designs and exercises as building blocks to confidence.

    What is a Pattern Block?

    These are the basic templates that are used to create dressmaking patterns. Our Blocks include a bodice front, back and a sleeve.

    Is it OK to cut up the block?

    Remember the NCUB rule. Never-Cut-Up-the-Block - as it's been designed for multiple use.

    Is the seam allowance included in the block patterns?

    No, you will add the seam and hem allowances once you have drafted your patterns from the block.

    What height person has the block been drafted for?

    The blocks have been drafted for a person who is up to 5 ft 7" (170 cm) tall.

    Is there an ease allowance in the blocks?

    There is an ease allowance in the blocks and the fit is slightly relaxed as opposed to figure hugging.

    What bra cup size do the blocks accommodate?

    The sample block size is a UK 10 with a C cup allowance. The additional sizes were then professionally graded. All of the styles that were made from the initial size 10 block fitted an A cup up to an E cup and have been designed to be a relaxed fit across the bust.

    What system do you use for the measurements in the kit?

    We use the metric system.
