There are a
million patterns in the naked city… yeah… a million… and wouldn’t it be
nice if just ONE of them fit?!? Well, my
friend, the search is OVER! We will
teach you the basics of fashion, fit, form and function that we use daily as
fashion designers so you can see a pattern and make sure it fits YOUR body
before you ever pick up your hooks, needles, and yarn. We're going to go deep into the minds of a
designer and show you just what all this fit, ease, and drape talk is all about
and what that means to YOU and YOUR body type and shape.
We'll start with making sure you can look at a pattern and KNOW if it's going to work for your body based on how the finished garment will sit on your body and how your body moves around inside the finished garment.
You will learn how to make basic alterations to a pattern that you will be able to use for every garment you ever want to make… EVER… did we mention the ever part?
We will start with measurements and form – what measurements do I take from where and how do I apply them to my pattern?
Then we’ll talk about fit – how do I make a garment that fits a certain style or body type?
Then we’ll move to function – whom am I making this for and where will they wear it?
Finally… fabrics – how to take your swatch and convert that into a pattern For this class, we are going to be using a pattern template for a FAB drape front cardi that you will be able to alter and customize to your heart's content.
The registration fee includes a materials fee of $6.00
