Fundamentals of Patternmaking


Have you always wanted to know how to create your own patterns using just your measurements?  This course will teach you fundamental flat-patternmaking skills to get you started!  Start by learning how to draft a sloper skirt pattern custom fit to you.  Then you will learn the techniques needed to take that pattern and create new silhouettes from your custom fitted sloper!  (since the skirt is a simple silhouette it is always chosen as the starting point for learning pattern-making as it is the easiest way to learn the fundamental techniques to eventually move towards more challenging styles)
