This is a custom made basic dress block for woven fabrics.
You can use that basic block to create patterns for blouses, shirts, tops and dresses.
I draft the basic blocks using Mueller & Sohn pattern making method. Additionally I take into account the difference between bust and underbust measurements, so the fit is much more accurate in the bust area. This block has two darts at front piece (bust dart and waist dart) and two darts at back (shoulder dart and waist dart), there is also a dart on the sleeve.
The sloper will be made for a standard figure, because I can analyse your silhouette basing on only 12 of your body measurements. Therefore I won't be able to see all the unique characteristics of your body like your posture, back and bust type, shoulder shape or figure stance. With the ready pattern you will get instructions on how to make some corrections (if needed) to the basic block.
The default basic block is drafted for a fitted woven dress with a sleeve. It has a 4,5 cm (1 3/4'') of ease around the bust area and 1 cm (3/8'') ease added to waist and hip circumference. The sleeve has 5-10 % ease added to the cup. This means that the total length of the sleeve cap curve has to be that much longer than the lengths of the front and back armholes added together. You can choose a different ease for your block.
With your purchase you will receive a file to fill in with your measurements - in centimetres or in inches. Additionally to the measurements you will choose the preferable paper size - A4 or US letter (you get always an A0 option for a plotter as well). You can also choose the preferable ease in the dress block if it is not the default one.
After the purchase you will get two files:
- a PDF file with detailed instruction (in Finnish and in English) on how to take all the needed measurements, how to choose the right ease and how to send back your measurements
- a .docx file to fill in with your details and measurements
