Drafting Patternmaking Blocks
Scroll down for links to the videos with instructions for taking measurements and for drafting the Bodice Block, Sleeve Block and Pants Block.
To draft your own blocks you need:
- card paper
- hard pencil (eg 3H or 4H)
- square ruler
- your measurements
You will need to make a toile from the finished block, fit the toile, and make any changes required to the block.
You can then use your blocks to make your own patterns.
