31  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Patter making on: February 22, 2013 05:50:45 AM
Hi Bella,

I have taught myself to draft and modify block patterns using a book called 'Pattern Cutting and Making Up The Professional Approach Volume One' by Martin M Schobren & Janet P Ward. I have tried using a few different books but this one is by far my favourite. It shows you how to take measurements and draft a block pattern to your own measurements. It also teaches you to customise your block to create pretty much whatever you want. It doesn't have the easiest to understand layout but I have found that the content is excellent. I drafted my first trouser block using this book yesterday and it fitted me perfectly!

If you're up for drafting your own pattern this website has a tutorial on making a bra pattern to your opwn custom size:

I haven't personally used this tutorial but I've read through it and it looks very good. To make the bra into a bustier you would just lengthen the 'cradle' to your desired length.

Hi Kailali,

I haven't personally tried this technique but I have some notes on a circular skirt with a cascade ruffle from a course that I did at the London College of Fashion. It basically says that you need the cascade part to be on the bias and have a rounded edge. Having a rolled hem might also help the edge to curve round too. Here is a link to the main diagram from my notes:

I hope this helps!
