Block making

Recently I've been block making. Standard size blocks are used as templates for making patterns for my designs using the standard measurements of sizes 8-16. So I've been making these to save me time in the future when beginning to pattern cut my designs. It is quite a complex and lengthy process as there are a lot of measurements of the body to consider rather than just the usual bust, waist and hips measurements. I have drafted standard size waist blocks as well as a few different skirt shapes which will help me when designing my collections. So that's a technical part of the process over and onto the fun bit, designing!!
