Alice Cliff - Creative Pattern Cutting Dress Workshop

This pattern cutting workshop will give you the skills to actualise your grand designs into beautiful, well-fitting dresses. Be challenged and inspired to learn from a professional Pattern Cutter with over twelve years' experience in luxury fashion.

Learn techniques including draping, dart manipulation and use of volume, and open your mind to all the design possibilities. Design directly onto the dress block in calico on the stand and develop skills to convert this into a professional pattern. We will focus on the dress block, but these techniques are transferable to any garment.

Objectives: Learn design, draping and pattern cutting techniques.
Complete one perfect block pattern and two new patten designs to be made in your chosen fabric.

The workshop involves pattern cutting and sewing. A great course for someone who has never created their own pattern before to those who have mastered a few pattern hacks and want to advance to self-drafting patterns or fashion students looking to increase their skill level.

Basic sewing skills and have used commercial patterns required
