About This Class

If you're serious about fashion designing, this Course is for you. Pattern Drafting (or Pattern Making) is an essential skill in creating a Fashion Collection.

This is an "8-videos" Class, a "step-by-step-how-to" Class that will empower you, give you confidence, and take your designing knowledge to a whole new level; it is a beginner/intermediate Class, packed with valuable useful practical techniques.  

Learning Pattern Making is essential to support your fashion designs; you must know garment construction in order to create the ideas swirling in your mind.  

In this Class you will learn principals and techniques such as:

  • Dart Manipulation -- transferring Darts
  • Using the Draping process to create a Pattern
  • Learning the "Pivoting" and "Slash & Spread" methods
  • Transferring a Muslin Drape to Dotted Paper
  • Dotted Paper to Manila Paper
  • Adding a Yoke
  • Princess Seams, Princess Stylelines 
  • Darts, Pleats, Tucks.
  • Labeling a Pattern
  • Grainlines 

Manipulating darts from one position to another, from one "angle" to another, will increase the number/amount of options available to you and expand your creative reach. Included in this Class is the Draping process, which when used creatively will enhance the ability to develop new and exciting fashion designs.

Once the muslin has been draped, transferring the information to paper is essential. Also, the different types of paper used in the industry t develop patterns. 

Learning how to take a simple skirt and by the use of adding a Yoke , you can develop new ideas and spark your imagination to endless possibilities.

Labeling a Pattern correctly can mean the difference between a beautiful design versus a disaster! Thus learning how to label a pattern correctly is very important -- the industry demands perfection when it comes to being accurate and precise.

And the use of proper Grainlines can be the difference between cutting the garment correctly or cutting it "the wrong way" and thus having to cut it all over again.

Getting to know, and familiar with, all the necessary tools used in the industry, makes the difference between a professional and a novice when going for a job interview.
