Block Pattern

What is a Block Pattern?

A block pattern is a basic pattern used in garment construction. It serves as a template or starting point for creating different styles and sizes of garments. A block pattern typically represents a standard set of measurements and proportions for a specific garment type, such as a dress, blouse, or pants. It is often made from cardboard or stiff paper and consists of the basic shapes and lines necessary to construct a garment, including bodice, sleeve, collar, and skirt or trouser components. Block patterns can be customized and modified to fit different body shapes, sizes, or design preferences, providing a foundation for creating well-fitting and aesthetically pleasing garments.
