Learning Outcomes


In this unit you will develop the skills and knowledge required in the development of a range of patterns from an existing block/s, using advanced patternmaking principles, including contouring, square blocking and pivoting.


Details of Learning Activities

The course is integrated with LMTFD4008BA Construct stock size block for garment to meet size and fit specifications
to form a cluster called Pattern & Block Design.
In this course you will be involved in theoretical and practical tasks.
You will develop the skill to -
• measure and assess fit requirement
• develop patterns from a base size block
• determine and Interpret design lines and features
• create, check and test patterns
• standard operation procedures to label and identify final pattern components
• maintain accurate records though development of student notes and course hand outs
• Use trade sketches to identify information and finalise pattern specification sheets
•recording and reporting practices
•You will be expected to attend, participate and complete each progressive task to the required standard, to be eligible to be assessed and to continue with the next task.
• As well as class activities you will be required to undertake research and assessment practise outside of regular class times.
• You are reminded of the learning expectation that you will complete an equal amount of research time outside of class as you do in class to demonstrate your understanding and to be deemed competent in this course.
