You are welcome to this sew for fun thread.My name is Valerie Boglo the CEO of www.valisimofashions.com

I own a fashion school in lagos and I have trained many people who are now successful designers in their own esterblishment.

as my little way of giving back to my society I will love to help others who have interest in the profession to either start learning or perfect their skills.

Personally,it will be a thing of joy to me if I can help one ore two people like you out there to see the beauty in the art of making garments.

In my spear time I shall be posting picture of designs that we would all sew together.remember this is all for fun winkcheesy

More details coming soon.

Next is taking accurate measurement.its Important to take accurate measurements as this would directly affect the end result of the project.
*Note that its best to take the measurement from shoulder to toe, this way you won't forget any part if you are measuring some one else.

MEASUREMENT

Shoulder-shoulder bone to shoulder bone
Neck -Neck depth,from shoulder down.
Sleeve -sleeve short,3quater or long lenght
Arm -the circumfrence of your arm

The bust area is next ,we measure that by lenght and circumfrence.

Bust by lenght

Bust measurement by lenght is taken from the should down to the upper bust area,shoulder to bust area,shoulder to under bust area.

Bust by circumference

Upper bust-circumfrence of the upper bust area
Bust - " " " " "
Under bust-" " " " "

Waist- circumfrence and lenght or waist
Hip -circumfrence around the hip
Lenght - top lenght or dress lenght


Skirt
Waist -circumfrence
Hip. -circumfrence
Half lenght-taken from the waist down to. 2inches above the knee.
Full lenght-its taken from waist to the toes

This ends our measurment class.pls make sure u master all these measurement areas as I shall be making reference to it from time to time.

*in picture some measurement area.

Our next topic will be Basic Blocks in fashion designing stay tuned cheesywink

Thanks to you too sis, wink


Now the next topic is basic blocks in fashion

[size=18pt]THE 5 BASIC BLOCKS.
[/size]
Generally we have 5 basic blocks we must consider when making garments for male female and kids.the five basic block areas are expected areas on a humans body our sown garment "should" cover.

Pls note the word should cover as its not a must that all designs must cover the specific areas I will soon mention.

They are as follows-

1, Front Block Bodice
2,Back Block Bodice
3,Front skirt/trouser block
4,Back skirt/trouser block
5,Sleeve block

The front block bodice is any piece of fabric covering from the shoulder down to our natural waist line.ie,the navel area.at this point we are not concerned with the type of style,neck line design or finishing you use in that front area.we just believe that,according to the principle of being well dressed, the front part should have a covering.wink

The Back Block bodice is also any piece of fabric covering the back side from the shoulder down to the waist area.

The front block skirt/trouser is the covering from the waist down to your toe.

The Back Block Skirt/trouser is also the covering at the back area from the waist to the heels if need be.

The sleeve Block is every fabric that we use to cover our hand area,be it short medium or long sleeve

In the diagram below the front and back blocks area placed on fold
