Pattern-making

image8

Stop using patterns which never fit, learn how to create  your own patterns This hands-on class will introduce you to the world of fashion pattern making, including sample viewing, how to correctly take measurements, learning different tips and tricks using different paper pattern making tools, and lastly create   and modify skirt, dress, blouse, t-shirt, shirt, coat, pants, shorts patterns and more.

Fitting and Alterations and Custom Projects

image9

 Learn how to alter sewing patterns to create garments that fit and flatter your form . You'll never look at a paper pattern the same way again after this class.  Start by learning to "read" the fit muslin as it points you to the right places to adjust the garment. You'll learn the importance of grain lines and well-placed darts. Watch how adding or subtracting fabric from one area of the dress magically improves the fit somewhere else. Then learn how to transfer your changes from the muslin back to the  pattern. The end result: a custom-fit garment tailored perfectly for you!
