1. Introduction: Clothing sees a lot about the style and personality. Making your own clothing can just sit in a garment that is more durable, sustainable, and non-toxic. Besides, fashion design can be phon, and deserves to be enjoyed by everyone. If you're someone who thinks making your own garment can be difficult than this class is for you. Hi, I'm cloudia, a fashion and Lifestyle accessory designer. I have spent years discovering new methods to incorporate sustainability into everyday life. Join me in this class that I simplify and bring the garment making process to everyone. Tools like Clo3D may come quicker than ever before. We even begin by finding inspiration for concept. Then move on to the design and customization using digital pattern making and prototyping techniques. And finally, soon and finish our garment. Through this class, I want you to experience and enjoy the interconnected world of fashion design and sewing for everyday life. After completing this class, you would be able to appreciate the joy on making your own governments giant know, and let's get started. 2. Class Project: The class project is to design and make your own garment. In this class, I'll be making a tank top. This will help you to understand the core concepts, while also means simply to design and execute. You can follow along with me, or you may choose to make any other garment of your choice. We will be approaching this project in four phases. We first design on the type of garment we are going to make, restart making some choices on the garment, such as the type of neckline blend, sleep much needless, three, that start thinking about the pattern. We can either buy a Pattern online or an existing image of a pattern you may already have. This is where you find ideas by drains, struggling and searching for new inspiration and start collecting reference images. Phase two, we will start to design and prototype our ideas inside of Clo3d. This is where we can express our creativity and make design decisions for the aesthetics and functionality of a Garment. In phase three, the plan, how we can execute our design will be making Patterns Digitally and print them in phase for even come to the final phase of execution, we will be cutting, sewing, and making our own garment so we can read it all gifted to allowed one is going through the entire design process. In this class. You'll be needing a trial version of Clo3d and some basic sewing Tools for completing this project. I have listed all the necessary supplies in the class projects section. Learning happens when you start doing, grab all the supplies and sewing Tools to get started. After you're done, please upload your project Ashley image in the Skillshare projects section. I can see your work and provide feedback. It will also be a wonderful source of inspiration to fellow students if you have any questions, post them on the discussions so I can get back to you soon. Hope you enjoy this class 3. Learn the Clo3D Interface: Clo3d is a software that allows you to create, Simulate, and visualize virtual governments to a apparel production. The scope of Clo3d, this vast in this class, we will learn the essentials needed to design our own garment. Let's first learn about the user interface. On the right, you will see the 2D pattern window. This is where we went Draft and edit effect. And since this is an important function, we will be spending a lot of time in this window. If you're familiar with pattern-making, human fine dissimilarity between the real-world pattern making and the 2D pattern window. On the left, you will find the 3D garment window. This is where you will see your patterns come to life and form a Garment. This window displays your garment in 3D space. Just like in real life. Any edits you make to your pattern in the pattern window will translate an update here in the 3D window. To the left of the 3D garment window, you will find the library. This is a collection of digital items that you may commonly use. You will be able to find common items such as various types of fabrics, zyz, let us and other accessories in the library. On the top right corner, you will see the object browser. This is List view of all your objects in the currency. You will be able to reveal all the items used in the garment. On the bottom right, you will see the property editor. This lets you edit and control certain properties and parameters of your selected object. The property editor can use to change properties such as Fabric, color, and prints. We'll see this class later. Now, let's see how we can navigate the Interface. Clo3d, understand the navigation functions. Let's open this female t-shirt from the library by double-clicking on it, click and drag the scroll wheel to pan view. This can be used on both the 2D pattern window and 3D garment window. Rotate the scroll wheel to zoom in and out. This can also be used on both the 2D and 3D garment window. Right-click and drag on the 3D garment window to view our own your garment. Note that this provided to navigate the 3D space and hence only works on the 3D government window. Now, let's tweak the interface a bit so that all our tools are visible and easy to access. Create a New Project and click on Settings, and click on the User Settings. This brings up the User Settings pop-up where you can set your preferences, click on the user interface and change the 3D toolbar to left and 2D toolbar to the right and click To close. This will bring the toolpaths to these sites, allowing me to view and access all the tools with each. This is just a matter of preference, but I strongly recommend you to do so because having top toolbars can hide some of the potential tools and accessing them can be difficult. In this lesson, we discussed the basic UI, navigation and customizing user interface. The next lesson, let's discuss how to Make Clothes That Fit Your Size 4. How to Make Clothes That Fit Your Size: In this lesson, let's talk about our and our data is a customizable digital manager that allows you to trip you Design. They can be edited to match your body measurements. This way, you can see how a constructed pattern will look on your avatar before making Clo3D lets you create a new or modify an existing out there as per year. So let's see how we can get an avatar for as. I will go to the library and click on the attack. On the bottom, you can see the Avatar folders for me, female and keep. I will double-click the female folder and then double-click on the F v2, know me a week. This will load our data into the scene. You can change the shading of the attack by clicking this button to the left. You can switch between wireframe, textured or solid shaded. I prefer the solid shaded version. As you can work without any distractions from the textures. Openly Size folder from the library. Different body types are listed here, such as messy. And choose the one that fits more closer to your body type. I'm choosing us ASTM, messy, curving, double-click the folder and choose a standard size. I will choose the size six here by double-clicking on the file. Now, that file gets loaded in this scene, we can verify if the pad is closer to our Size. Opening the Alitalia editor. In the alphabet editor, we can view and change the measurements as per your size. The defaults work for me. I'm not going to change the numbers here. I prefer to work with interests, so I will change the unit 2 " here. Make sure my bus and hip values of this avatar matches closer to mine. If the size is little bigger, it Own be a major problem. Once we verify that the measurements of the hour that matches us, we can close the if the measurements does match yours, go to the next or previous sizes. Feel free to explore the different sizing and body types to find yours. Remember that our tasks are digital representations of your body measurements. So having an avatar that matches you as close as possible, we'll get the best results. In the next lesson, let's discuss the Methods To Draft Patterns Digitally 5. Easy & Quick Methods To Draft Patterns: In this lesson, we will talk about Pattern Making. We can approach this in two ways. If you already know to make patterns, you can start from scratch using the tools we will discuss in this lesson. Or you may already have a patent that is hand-drawn or even purchased online to make things simple, I have a pattern of a tank top. Let's see how we can get that working from the 2D pattern window. Right-click and choose Add background image. Click the small folder icon next to image file. This will bring the file browser open the tank top referred image from the Resources folder. A beginner, I strongly recommend you to start with the simple matter that would make the process varies. Notice that the image on the 2D window is larger than the other at that outline. I will reduce the scale down to 30 percentage. I will arrange the pattern by clicking and dragging the image so it will overlap the outline. I wish to change the scale to 40 percentage to give a little looser fit, rearrange and make sure the image or labs the habitat nicely. You can change the opacity. I will keep it at 60%. I wish to see the lines of both my pattern and my Al-Qaeda clearly click Okay, after you're done to edit the background image, again, simply right-click and select Format to debugger. I wouldn't zoom in and make some minute moments to place my background image in the center and click, Okay, after getting satisfactory results with the placement, click on the 2D icon on the bottom right side to see one dB 2D pattern window. This gives us more screen space for us to trace the path. To trace the pattern, we will be using two important tools. They are polygon tool and edit Pattern tool. We will see how to use them. Select the polygon tool from the toolbar of the 2D pattern window. Start from the center and just click on the corners. To create points of a polynomial. We just have to make the corner points and not worry about the curves in between them. Just continue tracing until we finish tracing half the battle. At the last point, you can notice a pink line indicating that we are at the correct location. To draw a center line, I will make a final point to close the polygon. This will also be the center line. Now, I will click and hold my left mouse button on the back into from the toolbar. Choose Edit, go from the Tools drop-down menu. Now, we can add points on this straight line and pull them to form a curve. This will let us shape or pattern. As per the design. I'm adding curve points and forming curves on the neck. And this side. If you notice, I have completed tracing half of my pattern exit out of the edit curve tool. By selecting the Edit Pattern tool. Again. Select the center line and right-click and choose unfolds electric editing. But soon, this will mirror the pattern. On the other side. This option, if I change the curve points, it will automatically update on the other side of the pattern, just like I will press Control set on the keyboard to undo the last action. We're mirroring the pattern so that we were leaning on one side. It makes editing easier. This also menisci sewing, which reduces the time span and the chance of errors Using the same technique, I have traced the backside as well. For adding an internal dot, left-click and hold the mouse button on the Internet polygon slash line tool. And click on that tool. Now, click and drag the mouse to draw a dot of the approximate size. Click on the move tool to move place. We can edit the size of the data if needed, by dragging the hundreds. As we meet patterns in Clo3D, we will be able to appreciate the advantages of making patterns Digitally. We are able to construct the lines and curves without the need of physical tools are complicated drafting procedures. Suppose you want to have this tank top made into different sizes for your friend. Are you allowed one to my simply modify this pattern within a few minutes. This makes anyone who's not a professional in making Pattern To Draft, learn, and enjoy making patterns. In the next lesson, we will see how to Simulate The comment on the other day 6. How to Digitally Sew & Simulate The Garment: In this lesson, let's discuss how to simulate the pattern. So it looks more like a finished garment. The next step after making the patterns will be to place them correctly on the attack. For example, we have to place different pattern on the front side of the ADA and the backpack on the backside of the ADA. And Easy lives, if required, will have to be placed on the Clo3D offers arrangement points through which we can place our patterns. Let's see how to do that. Click on the icon at the bottom right corner to switch back to 2D, 3D split screen view. Now we have the pattern displayed on 3D on the 3D garment window. Hello, no worthy of that display on the left side and click on the show arrangement points. But now you can select different Fabric and click on the outlet that friend to place it on the front side. Select the back Fabric and place on the backside of the Alitalia. You can now use the small arrows to adjust the position. In this way. You can arrange any piece of fabric that before, soon after we successfully placed our patterns, we can move on to the digital Sewing process. We can choose the edges that need to be soon together, such as for the edges of the shoulders sites and the dots. Just like create Sewing, turn off these show arrangement points in the outer display. The next step is to sue the open ends together. From the 2D pattern window, click the swing icon, choose segments, sewing. Now I will click on this side that this will simply the edges to get. Click on one of the open edge on the top and hover the cursor to the other edge. This will highlight how the stitch lines will come. I'm referring to the 3D window to select the correct pair of the top edges. Make sure to get straight sewing lines as shown here. If you're getting crisscross Sewing minds, we need to correct them. Select the Edit Sewing to right-click on the Sewing edge and reversing. This will make the Sewing nights straight. Now, even PSU, site, edge friendly segment Sewing, choose the segment suing. This tool will sue segments that are different from each other. I will select the edge line from the back piece and press Enter. Now, select the other two edges from different and press Enter. This will, to these sites together. I will now use the Move tool from the 3D garment window. And we'll move the front piece a break to see my stitch lines. Make sure that all my stitch lines are straight. Click on the large arrow button from the 3D toolpath to Simulate The Garment. Alternatively, you may simply press Space-bar to simulate the Fabric and drip onto the other day. Now, my top looks a little bag and fits lose on my avatar. Select all from the pattern window and deduce the size a little bit. And pushing the pattern back to the center and press Space-bar to Simulate my garment. Again, we can repeat this process until we're satisfied with different. Here you can see the power of using digital tools to help us using this technique, you may modify or change the size of your garment at any point in the future, I wish to hide my background image. So I will access format to repack road by right-clicking on the pattern window. Bring down the opacity to zero to completely hide my background image. Now, a 2D window looks a lot thing. I will select all my pattern and move them to the sender. We can use Clo3D to visualize our pattern in real time without laying on complicated processes such as making physical prototype. This is a game changer as lots of time and effort. The next lesson, let's discuss digital design and customization 7. How to Design & Style Your Garment Digitally: In this lesson, Let's see how we can use Clo3D for designing a Garment. At this stage, I would like to explore different options for the neck length, Britain and France. These details will impact the look of the stock. This is where digital tools shine bright and help us meet confident design decisions, covenants, experiment and explore the possibilities. We can now start to design the neck Digitally by just altering the Patterns. You can see the changes update on the 3D garment window ten times as you work on the pattern. This helps us visualize at Design and enable us to make design decisions. That we can also add extra code points to change the code completely. Press space bar after every change you make to treat Simulate your garment. For my design, I prefer a curved, U-shaped make. The same way. You can change the back neck. Changing different points will also change the look of the top. I will reduce the height a little bit. You may also make this as a cropped up. This way. We can design the front and back lens and shapes. As we decide. I prefer to keep my thoughts a little long. So I will move the points accordingly. I will press Space-bar to simulate, again. Changing the push off the bottom points will change the fit of our top. We can change it to get straight on a flat outfit. I recommend saving your project often so you can get back from arrows and crashes. Until now, we design the features of the stock. Friends can add a whole new dimension to our garment. You do the last availability of prints. It may be difficult to choose the correct one. We can use the texture editor to view departments with different things. This will help us to choose the light print for our design. Click on the fabric from the object browser under the property and find the property that sees texture. Click on the open picture editor button. That texture editor window opens up. We can add a texture here. We can try adding Tyler, Texas, done on the repeat tidy checkbox. Decrease the scale using the gizmo located on the top right corner of the texture editor and click Play. When you're done. In this lesson, we discussed how we can stay on customise a Garment. The sky's the limit. There are endless possibilities. Explode and make your creativity flow. Learning happens when you explore and experiment more. And such digital workflows. Exploration in a very short amount of time. In the upcoming lessons, we will see how we can execute this design in real-world so that we can wear a Garment 8. Creating Usable Patterns For Sewing: In this lesson, we will get the pattern out of Clo3d. We can use it to make a real piece of clothing to make the Sewing process easy, we need to mask some essential such as CMA elements. I will click the same elements icon from the toolbar, the 2D pattern window with the same elements to it selected. Just click on the edges to create the extra space for this seems I will select the shoulders and sites. We also need to make. Once on the backside. I wish to have a same elements width of 15 MM. So I will select all these seems. Holding the Shift key to select multiple seems. Enter MM on the with the property editor. The new SIM elements width will be updated on all these selected scenes. For the bottom seam, I want to have a Hamdi. So I have a value of 20 MM for the bottom. Click on the notch from the toolbar. Now, I will click on the corners of the shoulders to add a notch. And the same notches on the backside to I will also add some notches on these sites and the bottom. These notches will help us when we cut and make the pattern. Select the whole pattern, copy and paste to create a duplicate. I'm copy-pasting by using the standard copy paste shortcut Control C and Control V. Since I design a symmetric will only one-half of the pattern. Generally in such cases before the Fabric into half and cut. This makeup work simpler and will also reduce the amount of paper required for printing. To delete half the pattern, simply choose the Edit tab into, select the middle line and right-click and choose removed linked editing. Now, I would just select the points on this side and press the Delete key. Since we removed the linked editing, we can edit or delete one side without affecting the other. The similar way, we can delete one-half of the backside to average, just move the pattern a little closer. There are some notches in the middle line which we won't be needing. So I'm using the notch tool and selecting the notches and deleting them. Now we have finished making the pattern. We can export this to PDF documents so that we can print it out. Temporarily, delete the full patents. We can Export one half pattern. I would save my file before deleting the full patterns. So I can come to it at a later point in time. Select the half Patterns and click File export, Adobe PDF. I really give it a name and click Save. In the Export PDF up. I will check to export all lines suggests same elements, graphic lines, and internal lines. Make sure that the scale is at 100%, but 30 MM margins on all sides. Click Okay, to export a patent as a PDF document. Now, I have got my baton exported with all the essential lines. In this lesson, we saw how we can get Usable Patterns out of Clo3d. We discussed how we can add seam allowances, not just the advantages of printing symmetric patterns. In the next lesson, we will see how to make use of this pattern 9. How To Use The Pattern To Make A Garment: This lesson, Let's see how we can print and new cisplatin to make a comment. Since this is a large document, you can print this using an A1 printer. But if you don't have access to one, you can print this on multiple a4 papers. I styles and assembly together like a zigzag person. This process may seem complex, but it's very simply to execute. Let's see how we can do is press Control P to bring different settings. Select the poster option under the page sizing and handling. Make sure that the scale is set to 100%. Click on the labels and the cut marks checkbox. Choose the page orientation. Here. I will go with portrait. You can see the number of pages displayed on the top here. We can now click on printer. Once we have all the printed pages 3D, you can find the cut marks as crosshairs and the labels that we select it in different settings on the top-left corner. Now, I will arrange the pages as per the labeling. The labels define the rows and columns, the printed page. Next step, the beat to cut on the cut lines and glue the pieces together. For cutting and gluing. I'm using the cross has as my guide and I'm just making sure that the cross has matched between different sheets. You can also use any other organ to joining methods. As per your convenience. I will now cut on the cut lines to get my back-end. Now we have got this pattern ready. At this stage, we can mark any additional details like partnering, Center for Size, date at which this pattern was made. These additional labels will help us understand and reuses pattern in the future. The next step will be to transfer this to a piece of fabric, fold a piece of fabric into three, with the fault lines on the edge and the open edge in the middle facing you. I will place the pattern on the Fabric matching the Center for line. Using a marker, I will trace the lines from the pattern to the fabric. I will make sure that all the lines get traced, including the notches and the same elements is we can now cut the fabric on the trace lines. I will open default after cutting to relieve the other half. Using the same technique, he will cut the back side. Also. We have transferred this pattern to the next lesson. Let's see how it can sue and make a Garment 10. Sewing & Finishing The Garment: This lesson we will discuss how to sue and finish the garment. We will be suing the dad's first one to the site and showed us. Then we would finish the bottom with the hand and finally finish the neck. And I'm pulling with a bi-stable. The first step will be stitching different dots. I'm just pinching the dots together like this. I think making stitches on these lines shown here. I didn't make sure the points match with each other. And there's some middle line like this. Using a bank, I will secure both the surfaces Fabric in place. On the backside, I will fall deduct so we can see it together. Similarly, I will use a pen to hold the fabric in place. I'll be making stitches. On these lines shown here. Repeat the same process on the other. Now, eyelids teach the dots together. After sewing the dad, he pressed the fabric before you move on to the next day, he pressing after small, successful steps in Sewing will give you a finished look. In the next steps we will be soon sites shoulders. Using fancy by this technique, the raw edges will be completely enclosed in a neat double seen that is more durable it this way you also don't have to use a surgeon or an overlap machines. Yet. You wouldn't have the law edges finished. Now, I will lay the wrong side of the fabric pieces on top of each other and use Pins to secure them in place. You can see the stitch plan on how we can go up or stitching the pieces together. After we joined the pieces together, we can trim off some x's Fabric closer to the stitch line. Now, we can flip them inside out and stitch the edges together, keeping the correct sides facing each other. I haven't removed the threats that are sticking out from the ends. Me know how clean and finished French sees. If you have a surgeon, you Approach to stay differently. We can want to closing the bottom with a double fold. The edges 400 twice so that the raw edges are completely consumed. This is considered a most durable type of 14, bottom handy did I will fold the fabric twice from the bottom to about ten. Mm. This is why we had UNSC my loans of grantee MM, earlier. To get a better Finishing, I will use Pins to call defaults in place. You can see the stitch lines as shown here. Now we have stitch, the back, dots, friend dots, sites, shoulders, and the bottom. That's the final step of Finishing. We can finish the law edges of the hormone. There are various ways and methods to approach this. Free to choose your own every finish the neck. And I'm holding that the bites deep. I just need to attach this deep along the row, seems to finish them. I'm staffing to delay and opening the past and placing the end of the bias tape on the midline of the neck. The credit side of the bias tape should be facing the wrong side of the top as shown here. Now, I will make stitches on the lines shown here. And just hold the by state can make Simulate stitches on the other side. And I will just continue attaching the by state all around the neck using these same techniques. I have finished the neck and the arm holds. This gives very good Finishing my closing the raw edges. I will now flip my dog and say it out to relieve the correct side of the top. I have me and finished this canker that fits perfectly. In this lesson, we approached Sewing a Garment using simple techniques such as dots, Francine, devil for him, and bias binding. Feel free to share your preferred methods that you have used in the discussions 11. Conclusion: We have come to the end of this class. Let me know which lessons helped you along your sewing journey and what techniques you use to complete sewing your garment. If you have any feedback on my class, please feel free to use the review section. Sharing your feedback and experiences. They helped me to me grow my future classes. Thank you and cheers.
