Personally, I think that cutting by block pattern adaptation is a perfectly legitimate way of cutting a bespoke pattern. Whife thought so too, as did T.H. Holding before him. It's all a question of how much adaptation to the figure that is done that makes it a true bespoke pattern.

WHEN USING TROUSER BLOCKS A CUTTER ALWAYS PICKS THE PATTERN SIZE BY THE SEAT MEASURE.
EVERYTHING ELSE CAN BE ADJUSTED.

oops should have also said that for coats blocks they use the chest size.

those that are new do not realize that the block does not come from thin air.
a block is made by using a draft.

Love this thread... You are so right ~ blocks do not just magically appear!

The block pattern has to be chosen by the width of the front pattern respectively the hip girth, nothing else.
