Flat Pattern Design I Series


Flat Pattern Design I Series


This class is intended for both home stitchers and fashion design students. 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 in sewing 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. If you desire to create a customized block to your measurements, you may use lab time to work on that.

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. Garment making experience preferred, but not required.
