Intro to Creating Shape and Form (Patterning)

Are you interested in starting the process of creating your own clothing patterns? In this class we will work through the fundamental techniques of pattern manipulation commonly used for creating shape and form in clothing. We will learn to read a paper pattern, then work with paper shapes to learn dart manipulation, how to add fullness and how to create seams, all to establish the core techniques in all flat patterning. This is a beginner class designed for those just starting their exploration in pattern making, or for those with a self-taught pattern making background interested in building a stronger foundation of technical skills. You will leave with the underlying techniques that are the base for flat pattern making and can be built upon over time. To get the most out of this class it is recommended that you have a confident understanding of clothing construction and have sewn a variety of garments.
