I recently completed a BTEC certification in Pattern Cutting Level II. I first became interested in pattern cutting during my work placement here at Anna Scholz. It has been a long journey and I’m still a long way from being as talented as our in-house pattern cutter, Stefanie; but I have learned a lot!
Thought I’d share a few photos of me modelling my final project. Our assignment was to design a garment, draft a full production pattern and sew the garment. I made a little party dress with an intersecting bodice dart (pretty fancy stuff, eh?) and side pleats that match up at the side seam.
Note of interest: the side pleats on my dress are directly inspired by one of Anna’s dresses in the upcoming Autumn-Winter 2010 collection! Anna’s crepe jersey dress with side pleats is definitely something to look forward to– we’re all in love with it here at the studio.
My design?…Well, I don’t think it will burning up any runways anytime soon. But I did enjoy making it.
