Do you love skirts and dresses?
As a little girl, I loved dresses and dressing up. But as an adult - not so much.
But if you wear skirts and dresses - whether your look is tailored and professional or casual and boho - why not make your own?
The Beginner's Guide to Drafting a Dress Block and Designing Styles using Sleeves, Collars, and Darts will show you how to draft a block that fits your body, and then manipulate that block to create virtually any style of skirt, dress, or blouse that you like.
How do you do that?
It's not nearly as difficult as you might think. The hardest part is drafting and fitting your block.
But you can do it - I'll walk you through it.
First, you'll take a set of measurements and draft a dress block (a template or basic pattern that's used mostly to get your perfect fit).
Then, you'll make a mock-up or sample from a plain, woven fabric like muslin (or an old sheet!). You'll use that to do fittings and make corrections to ensure that your block fits you well. If you block fits, then everything you make using that block will fit - no more lengthening or shortening sleeves, or dealing with bust darts or waistbands that don't fit.
Once you've made your corrections and have a good block, you'll use that basic pattern as the basis for other styles.
With a dress block, you can make skirts and blouses or tops as well as dresses - so you'll make a whole new wardrobe!
The Beginner's Guide to Drafting a Pant Block and Designing Pant Styles is a complete course in pattern design for dresses, skirts, tops and blouses. You'll learn to manipulate the darts in your dress into flattering style lines, and add necklines, collars and sleeves.
Then what happens?
Well, then you start to create a whole new wardrobe of skirts, blouses and dresses - and wear them with pride!
They're your style, they'll fit great and look great - and so will you!
