Flat Pattern Design I Series

Flat Pattern Design I Series


You have design ideas, but don’t know where to start in making them a reality. In this class, you will learn the basics of drafting a pattern, which is used to cut pieces for a garment! All students will use the same size for the basic bodice and skirt blocks so that the focus is learning fundamental techniques, such as dart manipulation, slash-spread, pivotal-transfer, pleats, gathers, style lines, contouring, and adding fullness. We will sew muslins for some of the pattern manipulations.

Juki industrial straight stitch machines will be provided to use in class. 

Prerequisite: Must have some sewing experience, preferably in making clothes. If you do not know how to use an industrial machine, you may rent  one of ours or bring your own home sewing machine.
