Pattern Drafting and Pattern Manipulation Beginners

Pattern Drafting and Pattern Manipulation Beginners

In this course you will learn how to draft the Pattern Block to your own measurements. We will then develop garment patterns from theses blocks. You will learn how to draft design features such as pockets, waist and hip bands, facings and other features to create your own designs.

Term 1 - How to draft a Skirt Block
Term 4 - How to draft a Trouser Block

This is a beginner’s class - however it can also be used as a refresher course for people that have previously done Pattern Drafting.

You will need to purchase sewing supplies and materials, prices could range between $50-$100 depending on what you already have.

You will be well on your way to becoming a fashion designer!  Styling, colour, trends and fit are the key.  This is the fun part of creating your own fashion!!
