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, 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 on an industrial.
