Custom Bodice Block and Toile

Are you keen to start designing your own clothing but struggle to get a well-fitting bodice block to work from? Let me take the hard work out, and draft and remotely fit a custom bodice block for you. Once completed, the draft will be mailed to you, ready for you to start designing.

How will it work?

  • We will organize an online meet up during which I will guide you through taking your own measurements and discuss any fit issues you are aware of.
  • Following this, I will custom draft a hip length bodice block and sleeve to your measurements and sew a toile ready for fitting.
  • The toile will be mailed to you to be fitted via a second online meet up. It would be helpful, but not essential if you had a fitting buddy for this.
  • The alterations noted during the fitting will be made to your draft. In some cases it may be necessary to return your toile for this to occur. If a second toile is required, it will be prepared and sent for a fitting in the same manner.
  • Once we are satisfied with the fit, I will prepare a final clean copy of the block and mail it to you for your use, along with instructions on how to make your own toile to test your block.

What is included?

  • Online meet-ups to collect your measurements and fit your toile(s)
  • Provision of a Custom bodice block and sleeve drafted to your personal measurements
  • All postage and materials
  • One 30-minute online follow-up session to address any questions you have about your block or its fit
  • Written instructions on how to prepare a toile
