An Introduction to Pattern Design
Welcome to class. The three sessions of this class include the following.
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.
This course is designed for both people new to pattern making and new to sewing. To make the learning process as easy as possible, on page 24 of the class eBook An Introduction to Pattern Design there are instructions on how you can test the pattern design ideas with paper towels that require no sewing. This page also includes instructions on how to create the shape of the wine bottle from a piece of cardboard so you can practice the techniques. For more information, see the Overview.
To ask questions, feel free to join the free group Bespoke Sewing Patterns where you can participate in pattern design conversations.
