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 correctly measure your body in order to draft a sloper skirt pattern custom fit to you.  You will then create a muslin fit sample of that sloper pattern in order to perfect the fit!  You will leave the class with a custom sloper or foundation pattern that can be used to create any skirt style with a bit of pattern manipulation.  Sign up for the Level II patternmaking course if you want to take these skills to the next level!
