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.
