Over the six weeks students will learn Pattern Cutting skills for making clothes.

During the Fashion Pattern Cutting for Beginners course you’ll study different processes and techniques for making clothes, looking at different ways to research, evaluate, and construct different garments. The idea of the course is to develop an understanding of how garments are made and how to draft patterns for original garments.

Students will be required to research garment design, create a basic block to their own body measurements and learn specific techniques for pattern drafting to make clothes - which will be the starting point of understanding what goes into generating original Fashion ideas.

The course is suitable for beginners, it is a short fast-paced introduction and is a technical subject so will require a practical hands-on approach.
