An Introduction to Pattern Design
In this class you will learn the four basic techniques for designing patterns from a fitted sloper. These are the basic techniques you will use in any garment design process.
For the custom patternmaking techniques I will be showing you in the other classes, we will spend a fair amount of time creating the initial fitted slopers to work from. In this class we will minimize the time required by creating a sloper for an apron using the shape of a bottle.
The bottle emulates the process of working in quarter scale which is another valuable way of practicing pattern design techniques.
