Garment Designer allows you to design Tops and Bottoms in the same file. This allows you to design with proper proportions between jackets and skirts, pants and tops, etc. It also lets you build two-piece outfits such as empire-waist styles, jackets and skirts, pants/tops, and more. Learn how using this mode can help you design garments you never thought possible in the program.

Webinar: Twenty Pattern Guidelines

Webinar: Twenty Pattern Guidelines

Saturday, November 14th, 2020. 12 pm PT

If you alter or create your own patterns, then it’s time you increase your knowledge of pattern rules that professionals know and understand. In the class you will see how simple it can be…if you understand the basics. Study the anatomy of a pattern, learn how to change it properly and how to relate ease to fit. Garment Designer will be used to demonstrate examples, but this webinar is valuable to anyone who works with patterns for sewing or knitting.

Webinar Workshop: Copying Ready-to-Wear. **New

Thursday, Oct. 29th, 5 p.m. PT

This webinar is a natural follow-through from the Approaches to Copying Ready-to-Wear webinar. If you would like to try your hand at analyzing a style and creating a pattern for yourself, here is your chance. Susan will provide some sample garment images from Pinterest, or you can choose your own (please send us the image to ‘approve’). You will take the knowledge learned in the first webinar and apply it. Then, email your Garment Designer file and the image to Susan in advance, and we will spend the webinar going through a critique with everyone’s garments. There is nothing better than learning by sharing. Susan will comment on each participant’s project, and if applicable, make suggestions for change. In the end, you will be much more adept at how to analyze a garment picture and turn it into your own personal pattern.

We suggest keeping this first attempt somewhat simple.

Lagenlook fashion has gained popularity worldwide for its versatility, comfort, and practicality. For this webinar we will be exploring the Lagenlook and its use of unique styling and layering.

This webinar will go over which style elements work best, and which are ideal for your body shape. Susan will demonstrate pattern building in Garment Designer, but one doesn’t need to own the software to gain knowledge. The asymmetric elements, varying hemlines and unique styles makes this look perfect for learning how to think out of the box and use different techniques in your patterns, whether with Garment Designer or home sewing patterns.
