In this class you will learn the basics of pattern drafting . We will go over technique along with different styles that can be created with pattern drafting. We will start with creating the basic sloper which is the basic blocks of the body. The bodice, skirt and sleeve. From there we will address fit issues and create a perfect sloper fit for you. By the end of this class you will have the confidence to start pattern drafting on your own.
The studio is spaced out so that social distancing is followed. You must follow all regulations by wearing a face mask at all time and using hand sanitizer and keeping your space wiped down.
