Pattern Making Essentials

Class Dates:

April 13, 14, 2019

Class Times:

10:00 - 4:30

Learn the essential pattern making techniques you’ll need to create new styles from your basic block patterns or your TNT (tried and true) sewing patterns. In this class Alexandra will show you how to manipulate basic bodice, skirt and sleeve patterns into new style variations by using the techniques that all pattern designers use to create their designs. Through demonstration and practice Alexandra will show you how to rotate darts, transform a darted bodice into a princess seam bodice and how to create flare and gathers. You’ll also learn how to draft a basic collar, a two-piece sleeve and learn the secret to eliminating gaping in lowered necklines and sleeveless armholes. Each participant will practice the pattern work using scaled block patterns so they can create a reference book of their work to use long after the class is over. ( max10 students - 6 students minimum)
