Flat Pattern Design I Series


Flat Pattern Design I Series


This beginner pattern making 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 to aid in the design process. 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.

There will be sewing machines to use in class when needed.

Prerequisite: Must have some sewing experience. Garment making experience preferred, but not required.
