Just as music has variations to a theme, so can we, using Garment Designer. In this webinar, you will learn how to take one pattern and apply different variations to it to create multiple looks. This is an ideal approach for anyone who has a garment they love, and want more mileage from. The inspiration garment for this webinar comes from Italy.
