PATTERN-MAKING 101

 

Projects

During the start of the course, we look at developing simple bags and accessory patterns using straight lines and right angles, but by the end of the program, students would have developed their own basic pants block with a fitting sample.

One of the biggest problems for seasoned sewers is being able to find the right patterns for the projects they want to work on. With a good understanding to the foundations of pattern-making, this is a problem that could be easily solved by creating your own patterns and blocks. The [ PATTERN MAKING 101 ] course is designed for students to understand the principles and guiding rules of pattern making so that they may be able to start to comprehend one of the most crucial and technical parts of fashion design.
