Patternmaking: Basic Dart Manipulation

June 18 · 1PM - 4PM

 

Dart manipulation is the foundation of flat pattern manipulation and the principle which other pattern making techniques are built upon. This half-day course will introduce the purpose of darts, dart rotation, dart splitting, and basic dart rules. Basic teaching tips will also be included. Course Fee: $75

Pre-requisite: None

Supplies needed: pencils, eraser, notebook, scissors, and tape.  

 

 

Patternmaking: Creating Style Seams

June 19 · 1PM - 4PM

 

Many garment designs utilize seams, such as princess seams or yokes, in place of darts. Converting darts into seams or separating a pattern into two or more separate pieces is an essential technique in the patternmaker’s toolbox of skills. This half-day course will focus first on creating vertical seams, such as princess seams and then on creating horizontal seams, such a yokes. Basic rules and teaching tips will be included. Course Fee: $75

Patternmaking: Creating Fullness and Flare

June 20 — 1PM - 4PM

 

The technique of fullness allows patternmakers to make garments that are oversized, flowing, flared, puffed, or any number of other adjectives commonly used for today’s clothing. It is a method of converting darts to extra fabric and/or adding even more fabric to a pattern in strategic locations. This half-day course will focus on different methods of adding fullness, how fullness affects designs on the body, and pitfalls to be aware of. Basic rules and teaching tips will be included. Course Fee: $75
