Learn to be a fashion designer in our fashion design classes! 🤩 Create your own designs and make them fit. Fashion design classes meet weekly for 6 weeks on Thursday nights. Students sew up their pieces, so you need to to have Sewing 101 or equivalent skills before starting fashion design classes.
This is amazing! I've never had clothes that fit me so well.
Everyone starts with Flat Pattern Clothing Design where you make a "sloper" that fits your shape and size perfectly 🤗. Those slopers serve as the basic building blocks for garments. Students learn to manipulate those sloper patterns to create different styles while retaining fit.

From there, you have a bunch of choices to continue with more Thursday night design fun:

  • Dressmaking students use the skills 💃 and slopers they made in Flat Pattern Clothing design to make a dress of their own design!
  • Pattern Drafting students learn to draw ("draft" 📐✏️) a pattern for pants from scratch based on body measurements. Then they sew them up and adjust them to fit just right.
  • Draping students learn to create patterns by pinning fabric in the exact shape they want right on a dress form. They can create unusual shapes much more directly and see what they'll actually look like. The shapes are then traced and cleaned up into pattern pieces.
  • Stretchy Design students learn the techniques to create the blocks for stretchy garments.. which covers most clothes we see people in nowadays! (t-shirts, leggings, bralettes, swim suits, slinky skirts...)
  • Open Studio students work on their projects along with others in the big studio with the excellent machines, big cutting tables, and occasional expert guidance.
You can do them all!
