A Seamster and The Machine - Pattern Magik II

Pattern Magik II

Patterns for wearable garments, apparel, and costume are a particular avenue for the seamster that can either be daunting, scientific, or embraced as a reference. Sometimes following them exact is what smooths out the process towards an end project. Other times, it is in the process of altering a pattern where the perfection happens. You can pattern a beloved article of clothing or its components, create straight from the paper patterns, or stir up the brew with your own unique imagination.

Join us for part two on the basics of pattern magik. During this class, we will explore the fundamentals for tools and tips of pattern drafting while reconstructing a basic top or basic bottom pattern in your size. This class focuses on patternmaking skills plus design and garment elements in ready to wear apparel.
