Adding a design element to your style

Once you have created a unique style from your basic block(s), why not add a design element such as a sleeve, neckline or pocket to complete your design? To get started simply select the design element that suits your style or project, follow the tutorial and get drafting in Adobe Illustrator.

We use star ratings

Each tutorial is marked with a star rating. A tutorial with two or less stars will have a slower pace. These tutorials are designed for people who have only just started using Adobe Illustrator as a pattern making platform. A tutorial with three stars or more, will have a much faster pace and are designed for people that have a good knowledge of the tools used to pattern make in Adobe Illustrator.
