Learn how to draft a jersey block, so you can get creative and make your own knit patterns perfectly fitted to your measurements.

In this class, Layla will teach you how to draft a jersey bodice and sleeve block from your measurements and will tackle fit adjustments on her block as well as Rosie's and Jemima's, so you can see the process on different body types.

Once you've drafted your block, Layla will also show you how to turn it into two jersey tops: a casual t-shirt with grown-on sleeves and a twist detail at the front, and a pretty square-neck top with puff sleeves.

Step up your jersey game with your own bodice and sleeve block and start creating the knit tops of your dreams!

Whats included in the class

This class includes over 1.5 hours of video tuition for how to create a well fitting jersey block, along with PDF instructions for drafting the bodice block, drafting the sleeve, some common fit adjustments and instructions for sewing up your new tops

Who is this class for?

You'll benefit most from this class if you are familiar with sewing patterns, have sewn some garments before, and have worked with jersey or knit fabrics. It is a straightforward introduction to pattern drafting so you don't need to have done any pattern drafting before.
