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 centimetre 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 available in two different formats: Printable only or Editable ... this page is for files which can be edited in a CAD compatible program like Corel Draw or Adobe Illustrator.
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!
