Pattern cutting is the engineering of fashion! On this course you will be encouraged to think analytically, focus on problem solving in pattern making, develop your confidence using knowledge you have gained in Beginners Pattern Cutting courses and prepare to complete patterns on a more professional level. This level is not about following instructions from books but rather coming up with your own ideas, based on what you already know and developing from there.
The tutor will give you challenging exercises to push your knowledge and translation of a given image even further. This intermediate level course offers you a structured programme to develop your existing skills and in order to gain from the course you must have previous experience in pattern cutting (at least two terms of beginners level, one of which covering the bodice block).
You will be learning manipulation techniques to produce a wider range of garment features and styles on a more complex level. the course will start with structured group exercises accompanied by hand outs and end with a personal project where you draft a spec drawing based on your own design, complete a pattern for it and stitch a toile to test the silhouette and pattern. The course will briefly cover exercises from all blocks (bodice, skirt, trousers, sleeve) and is only suitable for students who completed at least 2 terms of beginner’s level.
