You will need to draft full size blocks from your set of measurements for the following:
All the relevant technical information will need to be recorded on the blocks to make sure they can be used as a basis to create working patterns.
You will also create a set of 1/4 scale blocks to enable you work through a series of different pattern cutting processes and techniques to help you make informed decisions about what design details to use in your capsule collections and how to draft the patterns for those garments.
You can download and print off the full brief and the criteria you will be graded against:
The required samples to be included in your folders are:
You can download and print off the list:
To help you create your 1/4 scale blocks you can download and print off our standard measurements. Or you can print off the quarter scale size 14 from our own standard measurements.
If you find the quarter scale a bit small then the Half Scale blocks can be downloaded and printed off. These blocks will be easier to use for collar shapes and the openings adaptations as well.
All the Block Measurements and Instructions are in the Pattern Cutting Series in the Indepth Courses, but I have added them in here as well to make life easier for you. Do make sure you watch the videos as well as this will help t make it a bit clearer too.
You should now have your basic blocks ready to make up in Calico and fit. Here is a fitting checklist to help you analyse the fit on yourself and others.
I have added the dress blocks below. You will need to draft the One Piece Block before turning that into the Two Piece Block, if you choose to draft that one as well.
These can remain as 1/4 scale adaptations unless you wish to create a dress block for your capsule collection.
