Basics of Pattern Cutting


In this workshop, we will learn about the basic skillsĀ in pattern cutting for clothing. Starting with getting the right measurements, we will create simple 1:1 patterns for items such as a jumper and a blouse (other patterns can be included upon request). Hereby, we will also explore the difference between woven and knitted textiles and the impact on pattern construction. While some patterns can be designed from scratch, I will also provide some templates for more complex constructions. To understand how a flat fabric can then transform into a piece of garment for the human body, we will model the paper patterns onto a mannequin, or cut simple shapes out of sampling fabric.
