Block/s Used (Dress 004)

dress 004 blocks usedThis dress has a waistline (or high waist) seam, and I will use the Two Dart Bodice Blocks to create the bodice pattern pieces.  I will be creating the skirt pattern pieces without a block.  My blocks have the following information already marked on them: Contouring & the Empire Line.  You will need an understanding of what these are and have them marked on your block in order to follow along.

I am showing my personalised blocks rather than the standard size 14 that I use for general instructions, as this is the actual block I used to create my pattern.  Because they are m personalised blocks they may look a little odd if you are accustomed to using or seeing standard blocks.

For instructions on how to create personalised blocks to fit your individual figures, see the relevant pages under the Making Block Menu -  Making the Bodice Block Set and Making the Skirt Block Set.

Third Scale Blocks are available for download, so you can follow along and practice patternmaking theory without making the pattern full-size. Click on the link provided to be taken to the Third Scale Blocks page.  Before trying to make these patterns, even third scale, you should have a good understanding of the basics of patternmaking, the principles under the Principles menu, and have the Empire Line and contour markings on your block.
