Online Advanced Pattern Drafting Course
for Bespoke Menswear

Pattern Drafting isn’t just about following a system, it has as much to do about accessing figures, studying posture and recognising the idiosyncrasies of the human form that make us all unique to one another.   Whether you are a novice or a professional you will learn everything you need to know to venture into the bespoke tailoring trade confident of success. Unlike the in-house courses, the pattern drafting course is not hosted on fixed dates but can be scheduled at any time throughout the year depending on availability.

course goals

The purpose of this course is to arm the student with the knowledge they require to draft bespoke garments. Some students progress quicker than others. It's not a race to the finish, it's about understanding and learning the techniques required so when the student has mastered the techniques they excel at pattern drafting.

 

Equipped with the recording from each lesson, students can look back over the footage every time they want to cut a pattern.
 

Students have the option of mailing in their patterns each week for evaluation. If mailing is not possible, then they have the option of providing a screenshot or photo.


All students past and present can reach out to the course instructor for guidance under our one-year mentorship program.
