Continuing Education Course



Patternmaking I


Students learn to flat patterndraft from sketches, using approved slopers. In today’s industry, this is the fastest and most commonly used method. Students begin with seamless blocks, draft the pattern on dotted paper, add seams, and then transfer to manila for a final hard paper pattern, including an appropriate pattern card. Assignments include sewing the finished pattern in muslin, checking the fit on the dress form and making corrections to the pattern. Mirroring industry techniques, students develop skills expected of a designer and/or a first-pattern patternmaker.
