Pattern Cutting and Garment Construction for Intermediates

Part Time

Course Overview

Suitable for those who have completed our pattern cutting for beginners course, this 10 week course will enable you to gain further knowledge in pattern cutting and developing your ideas into unique patterns and constructed garments. If you haven't participated in our beginners course, but have some previous experience in pattern cutting, please get in touch so we can ensure we get you booked onto the best course for you.

Although the emphasis is on womenswear design and working to personal measurements, men are also welcome and can work to the measurements of a tailor's mannequin.

The following topics will be covered:
  • Grown on collars, revere and shawl, and suitable facings.
  • Grown on sleeves, raglan and kimono.
  • Front band and button openings.
  • Sleeveless style amendments.
  • Linings, and provision for movement.
  • Production of a draft and pattern for a style designed by yourself.
  • There may be the possibility to explore trousers if there is still time towards the end of the course.

Course fees include sewing materials such as threads, calico for toiles and pattern cutting paper. Our specialist tutor will provide advice for purchasing appropriate fabrics, buttons and other notions for final garments.
