Buy the Confident Cut and Spread Pattern Making Kit from Pattern Cutting Deconstructed. By following the clear instructions you will learn how to create two different jersey tops from one block pattern. You will make (1) an asymmetric pattern with manipulated bust and shoulder darts and side draping and (2) an asymmetric draped pattern with a built-in sleeve and a set-in sleeve.

Each style will teach you useful techniques for pattern drafting. You will learn how to manipulate darts to form new shapes, use the slash and spread method, construct a pattern for use on the bias, develop side draping by combining front and back pattern blocks, form an inserted geometric sleeve pattern, and form a set-in sleeve pattern.

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.

IMPORTANT: You must have a phone or tablet capable of reading QR codes to use this pattern making kit.
