Course Introduction

 [Mastering Pattern Block] is a confidence builder. You will have much more ease in your drafting once you complete this course.

If you don’t walk, you can not run. Simple!


When it comes to learning pattern-making, it's not just about memorizing formulas and calculations. Formulas and calculations never bring you where you want to be. 

You need to approach it in the right way and embrace the fundamental concepts that form the backbone of this art. A lot of people overlook these essential steps when they first embark on their pattern-making journey.

Who is this for?


A junior pattern maker who is eager to improve their pattern-making skills to advance to a senior level pattern maker.



A fashion school student who wants to build the foundation of pattern-making for their future career.



A freelance designer or a fit technician who wants to learn and create a greater fit to grow the clients' satisfaction.


What if you could revise or adjust existing patterns without worry or any doubt?

What if you could draft any patterns from scratch with absolute confidence?


While formulas and calculations certainly have their place, it's crucial to move beyond them. I am committed to delving into the relationship between patterns, measurements, fabrics, and the human body. By unlocking these vital concepts, you will possess the solid foundation necessary to create garments that truly reflect your vision. Don't let a lack of understanding limit your creativity.

I invite you to join me in [Mastering Pattern Blocks] and embark on a pattern-making journey that cultivates adaptability. This course is designed to empower you with a profound understanding to fast-track your career progression. Strong fundamentals are the key to success. Throughout the course, you will gain comprehensive knowledge of each pattern block, equipping you to confidently tackle any design challenge that crosses your path. Remember, the path to mastering pattern-making begins with a deep understanding of pattern block making.
