Even though we like to use computer pattern drafting, it is always a good idea to know some basics of hand-drafting.

In this workshop you will learn several hand pattern making techniques that can help you transform one garment style into another. Working with 1/4-scale basic patterns, students will learn how to add flare, create asymmetrical fronts, add a collar, alter an armhole style and other techniques. You will slash, spread, tape, and create; and realize it doesn’t take much to add your unique touch to a pattern.

In advance of the workshop, students will be emailed several files to print out. This will include 1/4 scale pattern blocks and a handout of designs we will create in class.

Learning Objectives

  • To learn how to perform several basic pattern techniques which can be used to add interest to a garment.
  • To demonstrate how and where each of these techniques are used in fashion clothing.
  • Techniques include adding flare, asymmetrical styles, straight to A-line, adding a collar, and pockets.

Supplies:  printer paper, paper scissors, scotch tape, measuring tape, ruler, pencil, manilla file folder, glue stick
