About our Block
From Block to Pattern
The block pattern is the starting point for creating perfectly fitting clothes. With it you can create patterns for tops, dresses, jackets and coats; manipulate darts to create design lines, add fullness in the form of tucks, gathers and drapes; formulate collars and various neckline designs, and create one-piece or two piece sleeves. It is used as the basis for all adaptations and is traced by pencil or wheel onto pattern cutting paper to produce the working pattern.
This second working pattern is used to mark out basic style lines and design features. Any sections that are applied to the working pattern can be traced off and worked on for further adaptation. The third and final pattern is the finished pattern that is used to cut out your garment. This pattern will display all the relevant terminology and includes notches and drill hole markings.
