Buy the Beginners Cut and Spread Pattern Making Kit from Pattern Cutting Deconstructed. By following the clear instructions you will learn how to create two different tops from one block pattern. You will make (1) a pattern for a top with geometric detailing and side slits and (2) a pattern for an A-line top with geometric detailing and a repositioned side seam. You can add short or mid-length sleeves to both tops.

Each style will teach you useful techniques for pattern drafting. You will learn how to draw design lines, construct facing patterns, develop a back facing, manipulate shapes, draw a geometric facing, manipulate darts and side seams, and construct side slits.

The projects in this kit are also available as part of the All Levels Cut and Spread Pattern Making Kit.

NOTE: PATTERN PIECES ARE NOT INCLUDED. You will draft the patterns yourself using the instructions provided.
