Lesson 1: Draft a bodice block based on your measurements. Make up a toile at home.
Lesson 2: Check the fit of toile and alter the pattern. Learn how to modify the bodice into different tops.
Your sewing level:
You will need prior experience of dressmaking as you will be making up the toile at home. You would get the most out of this course if you have already made a few items of clothing already. If you need to brush up on your dressmaking skills why not take our Ultimate shift dress class.
You will also need to have taken the Draft a skirt block class before this (which introduces the skills used in pattern cutting).
We will provide all the equipment you may need, pattern paper and calico for your toile.
Cake and tea will be provided to help the sewing process along!
