Draping Series I


Draping Series I


This is an introduction to draping. In this series, we will cover different techniques and practice draping common designs on half-scale Wolf body forms. You will learn how to transfer designs to paper to create a working pattern. Lab time may be used to free drape your own designs.

Juki industrial straight stitch machines will be provided to use in class, but if you do not know how to use an industrial machine, you may rent/bring a home sewing machine.

Prerequisite: Must have some sewing experience, preferably in making clothes. Pattern making knowledge strongly recommended, but not required.
