What to expect.......

If you’ve ever wanted to flat pattern draft women’s garments, this is the class for you.  During this 6 week course, we will draft a basic bodice and pant pattern from scratch and then construct them.  From these two simple drafts, it is possible to draft any women’s pattern which makes the possibilities endless. Once the simple drafts have been completed, you will learn how to manipulate darts, necklines and closures. This is a college level course without the hassle of college structure.  You must have basic sewing skills and understand simple math.  Join this class and see how easy it is to draft patterns for men!
