Blocks For Making Your Own RTW Patterns

Blocks are the foundation for making patterns ... everything starts with a block ... being able to manipulate a block means never having to buy a pattern again!

Anyone considering designing patterns for commercial sale must start with a set of standard sized blocks for their particular market ... be they by measured sizes or S, M, L, etc. I have created a full set of blocks in two centimeter increments (basically including a size between the normal 4cm increments) so you can mix and match to create whatever shape and size set you want and label the sizes in any way you want. My block systems are deliberately designed so that people can edit them in a CAD program so they include both Adobe Illustrator and Corel Draw native files.


I also include a layered PDF file for people who just want to print the blocks only ... these are no longer sold separately, but bundled together. PDFs​ can be printed in software like Adobe Acrobat

If you want to design a range of swimwear or dancewear for retail RTW sizing then you're going to need a set of blocks! These are aimed at professional designers and pattern makers ... you'll find them at the top of the shop. come with my continuous update policy ... once you purchase a particular set, if I update it I'll send you the new file automatically for free!
