Knit Kimono Block Worksheet (Download)

The instructions in this particular worksheet are for turning my Womens Knit Block into a Kimono Block.  It is one of my most favourite of blocks, and I've used it on many occasions with my Pattern Puzzle posts on my 'well-suited' blog.  The worksheet is 10 pages of diagrams and detailed instructions that leads you step-by-step through the pattern making process.

The Womens Knit Block comes is two sets of sizes: Sizes 6-16 and Sizes 12-22.  To decide the best size set for your pattern making, you can use my Size Chart to check against your own measurements.

Like my Women's Knit Block, the Kimono Block is best suited to two-way (four-way in the US) stretch fabrics.  If you desire to use one-way (two-way in the US) stretch, then I suggest you select a larger size for your project.

As for all new pattern making work, your block will have to be tested for fit before you begin any pattern making.  

The PDF is designed to be viewed on an iPad and has only one pattern making move or instruction on each page.  

You'll need some pattern making paper and the usual pattern making equipment.  Please remember that my Knit Block is best suited to two-way (US four-way) stretch knits.

Here is a list of the Pattern Puzzle posts that have used my Knit Kimono Block:

Pattern Puzzle - Kimono Twist Dress

Pattern Puzzle - Erte Inspired Design

PatternPuzzle - Sporty Glamour

Pattern Puzzle - Asymmetric Jersey Top

Pattern Puzzle - Vintage Bodice

Pattern Puzzle - The Draped Peasant Dress

Pattern Puzzle - Empire Cowl Knit II

Pattern Puzzle - 'Lady in Waiting'

This document is for HOME AND PERSONAL USE ONLY.  If you'd like to use this worksheet for commercial or educational purposes, then you do need to contact me for permission and costs. 

Enjoy. :)

Womens Knit Block 6-16 A4 letter (download)

The women's knit block is the starting point for many of your stretch patterns, not including trousers.  From tee-shirts to dresses, lingerie to draped dresses this block will enable you to produce many delightful stretch garments for your wardrobe.   It is provided without seam allowances, as are all my basic garment blocks.  This gives you the opportunity to add the seam allowances that suit your machinery and sewing style.

Available here as a PDF download to be printed as A4/US letter sheets to be glued together to get the full picture.  THIS PRODUCT IS FOR PERSONAL AND HOME USE ONLY.  For education and commercial use please email me direct.

I'm currently putting together files for a plotter (36") print and will announce the arrival through the newsletter.  Larger sizes are also being tested so I can reliably extend the size range to size 22.  Make sure you're subscribed to receive our newsletter to be the first to hear when new products are released.

Knit Block features:

My Women's Knit Block is home and industry ready and has No Seam Allowances (N.S.A.).  The block fitting is extended past the waist to the hip line to allow for the development of both top and dress blocks.  This a close fitting block intended for two way stretch fabric.  If you intend to use one-way stretch fabric then consider using the next size up so as not to over-stretch your fabric in fitting.  

It's also the very block used in so many of my Pattern Puzzles, featured on the blog 'well-suited'

Where do I start:

The first order of business is to select your closest size and begin the process of fitting this block to your own measurements.  The range of sizes on offer relates to my size chart.  Once you have achieved a good personal fit you will be ready to cut your first stretch patterns.

Remember I'm just an email away for any questions about our PDF downloadable blocks.  If you enjoy pattern making and fancy a challenge, have a look at the great pattern making posts on my blog, well-suited.

Enjoy.
