Learn to be a fashion designer in our fashion design classes! đŸ€© Create your own designs and perfect their fit. All our fashion design classes meet weekly for 6 weeks.

Creating a pattern is the first step in making a new garment, and that's what you'll learn to do first in all our fashion design classes. Then you'll sew up a sample based on the pattern to see how it works. We offer 3 routes to go about it:

  1. Pattern drafting is the most popular way to go - you use measurements to draw (draft) the basic pieces ("slopers") to make up your garment. This lets you create a garment to your exact body shape and size. Those pieces can then be modified to create different styles.
  2. Draping instead starts by pinning fabric in the shape you want to a dress form. This lets you create more unusual shapes more directly. The shapes are traced and cleaned up into pattern pieces, which requires some pattern drafting skills.
  3. Dressmaking is our newest class that we created to give you a shortcut to custom dressmaking. For that class, we've drafted many pieces in many sizes for you to start with, so you get to your dress design faster.
