The Patternmaking Module
We teach pattern drafting from scratch as against the free hand method. Working with patterns have various benefits such as minimizing errors, saving fabric and proper planning. Once you understand the principle behind pattern drafting, it can also be applied to any outfit.
We will also teach you how to read and decode a pattern book by following simple instructions so that you learn how to work on your own at home.
Learning outcomes include how to sew the basic blocks - skirts, bodices, dresses, sleeves, etc and how to convert them to working and final patterns. You will also learn how to work with darts, learn various dart manipulation techniques, contouring, style lines, neck lines and so many other principles that will turn you into a pro!
Just look at the work up there and be encouraged! Remember, they all started from scratch!
