Think of all of the clothes you wear that are stretchy: T-Shirts, Leggings, Bathing Suits, Bralettes, Stretchy Slinky Dresses, Skirts, and tops. Designing those clothes requires special sloper blocks with no darts that will work with stretch fabric. Learn the techniques to create those special blocks and design stretchy garments.
Day - Thursday
Time - 6:00pm-9:00pm
We will meet once a week for 6 weeks. Each week we will focus on a specific garment to design by flat pattern and then sew it up out of stretchy muslin to test it out. You will be able to add your own design flair to all of the styles that we create.
Week 1 - Dart-less stretchy knit bodice and sleeve foundation
Week 2 - Designing with the dart less bodice and sleeve stretch foundation
Week 3 - Stretch pants/bodysuit foundation
Week 4 - Designing with the pants/bodysuit foundation

Week 6 - Designing with the knit skirt foundation
Flat Pattern Clothing Design 1 You need to bring your sloper patterns from that class to week 1.
10 yards of stretchy fabric (for mock-ups)
All other supplies needed to pattern draft are provided in the studio for use during class.
Our classes are limited in size (and frequently sell out!). Each person has a station with a sewing machine reserved for them, so no refunds are offered on classes. If you know you'll be missing a class in advance, contact us and we'll see if there's a seat available in a nearby session you could attend.
