Two key steps for Perfect Fit Patterns

Most people find it difficult to make patterns with good fit.
There are some basic and key steps to make a good fitting garment.

See the Tips below >>

1. Taking the body measurements correctly, is the first step. Your measurements will be used to create your basic block.
If the measurements are incorrect, the garment will not fit.

2. Whether making a blouse, a jacket, a dress, a skirt or a pair of trousers, you will first need to make a good fitting basic block. At eTelestia you can learn how to make perfect fit blocks, in any size or personal measurements.

Using the right basic block with correct measurements, sets you on a good track for drafting perfect fitting patterns.

Did you find these tips helpful? In our online courses, you can master the skills of Perfect Fit Patterns for all parts of the garments, easily and quickly.
Our tutors will be there to support you personally all the way!

From Basic Block to Style development

By |2018-03-05T15:54:43+00:00February 2nd, 2018|Pattern making|

So I’ve made a good fitting basic block! Now what…?

Once you are sure and confident that the basic block you have created corresponds to your chosen figure, you can then proceed to what is known as style adaptation.

What is style adaptation in Pattern Cutting?

Style adaptation is a series of design manipulations that will bring your block to the final style of your garment.
For example: loose fitting blouse with gathers, blouse with yoke, wrapover vest etc.

All these styles could be created from the same basic block by applying different style adaptations.

With the constant change in fashion trends, you will find that there are so many style adaptations that can be applied that the creative possibilities become practically endless.

The eTelestia pattern cutting methodology guides you through the most important and significant style manipulations, so that you can learn the basic principles of style creation and understand how to make your own styles very easily and accurately.

Making Garments that ‘actually’ fit!

Making Garments that ‘actually’ fit!

Have you also noticed, like so many others, how difficult it is to find garments that just fit well?

According to recent research the average woman wears medium to larger sizes and she doesn’t have the ‘ideal’ figure of a model, however, the clothing industry still refuses to make clothes that fit her.

As a result, we’ve learned to compromise with badly fitting garments that make us look and feel bad.

So, why is it SO hard to find a garment of good fit?

In pattern creation, we first start of with a basic block and then move on to the development of the style.
If the basic block doesn’t fit the figure perfectly than you will never get a good fit.

At eTelestia we believe that it is time to STOP compromising!

You can learn how to make Perfect Fit Patterns, no matter what your size.

Learn how to make your own clothes based on simple methodologies, be creative, and make a difference!
