This course is designed to help beginners progress to an intermediate level in 2D pattern making. Students will learn the basic techniques for creating flat patterns for bodices, sleeves, and dresses and how to use these patterns to design different styles of every day garments.
Throughout the course, students will practice 2D pattern drafting, which includes taking specific measurements, doing calculations, and adjusting patterns.
By combining theory, hands-on exercises, and creative exploration, students will gain the skills to make a variety of flat patterns for bodices, sleeves, and dresses, design creative styles, and fix fitting issues.
Once the course is complete, students will have the confidence and technical knowledge to pursue more advanced studies or use their skills for real-world garment projects.
Students should have a basic understanding of the following concepts: differentiating between patterns and blocks, reading pattern labels and guidelines, taking body measurements, and applying basic fullness techniques for women’s garments (e.g., gathering, flare, pleats), understanding darts’ basic construction, and manipulation, differentiating between facing and lining, and recognizing yokes and panels. The ability to draft ladies’ pants or skirts is considered a bonus and is strongly recommended.
