Do you want to learn how to make your own patterns to use for designing your own clothes? This class is your first step towards becoming a pattern-maker! Draping is the process of laying fabric over dress forms, pinning and marking, and developing patterns from those markings. Flat Pattern Drafting is the process of taking measurements from the dress form, or a live model, and transferring those measurements directly to the paper to create flat patterns.  

This class will be an introduction to draping and drafting terminology, understanding the dress form and fabric manipulation. This class will be an introduction to basic draping and drafting techniques, and will yield patterns for a two-dart foundation bodice and two-dart straight skirt.  Students will need to sew a “mock-up” sample garment.  Basic sewing skills are necessary for this course. A basic sewing test may be required for entry into this course. Sewing 101 can be taken at Stitch Factory as a pre-requisite to this course.

This course will be 4 weeks. Class will meet 3 days per week for a total of 10 hours. There will be a total of 40 hours of class time for this course. Students will also receive 5 yards of muslin and 10 yards of pattern paper. Access to Stitch Factory sewing machines (including thread), table space, and dress forms is inlcuded. Students will be responsible for having sewing and pattern-making tools (including pins, scissors, and rulers). Kits are available for purchase at Stitch Factory.
