Webinar: LagenLook – Layered Fashions: Design and Drafting

Tuesday, October  20th, 4 p.m. Pacific Time

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.

Plan and pattern your next wardrobe with this fun and flattering layered style. To view some inspiration, take a look at our Lagenlook Pinterest board.
