Welcome to a new pattern making class. In today’s class, we are going to learn how to do a wrap top.
This wrap top or neckline is perfect to continue practising the corrective darts since we will learn that they do not always have to point to the bust point.
The main function of the corrective dart is to remove volume and to make sure that the patterns fit perfectly.
Remember that this class is a continuation of the corrective darts class, so I recommend that you watch the previous classes first.
The opening system of this top will be a zip on the back so that we can better appreciate the function of the darts on the body.
If we made a body where the crossing was the opening system, we would not be able to appreciate the function of the darts so well.
Today we will review what a master pattern is. You already know that a master pattern is the copy of the original pattern, so if we want to change or correct something in the pattern, we will not have to start from scratch.
In this class, we will go over how to make a front side pattern with its corresponding facing for this design.
Then we will also work the back of this design with its facing.
Remember that this design is designed to have a sleeve, that’s why we have not removed the ease in the armhole.
As always, if you have any questions about this class you can send me an email through your user account in the support section.

The best way to learn pattern making is by practising, so for today’s class, I am going to ask you to make the design that we have made today.
You already know that you can make this pattern in real size or half scale.
Please remember that in order for me to give you better feedback, please try to send me photos where the patterns and annotations are clearly visible.
