Course Description

Learn to draft a skirt pattern to your own measurements. Are you frustrated by the sizing of commercial patterns? Have you always wanted to be able to make a pattern that fits your shape? Start with this workshop to create a simple A-line or straight skirt pattern. Each student will use their own measurements to draft a paper pattern that they can use again and again. We will go over correct measuring methods, flat drafting techniques, and correct labeling and marking. You will complete a custom drafted pattern and sample muslin. Handouts on the drafting technique and stitching your final skirt will be included. This is a beginning pattern drafting class suitable for people with some moderate sewing skills.

TUITION: $115 + FEES: $25
