Learn to take personal measurements to be used to draft the Torso and Sleeve block/sloper. Each block will be cut in muslin and fitted to the individual. The fitting will be checked and any pattern adjustments will be applied to the draft. The draft will then be transferred onto card to be used to develop patterns.
Use 1/4 scale blocks to learn how to manipulate blocks into vaious styles before developing a full scale personal top or dress pattern. After the pattern is completed the design will be cut in muslin and sewn up for a fitting. The sequence of construction will be developed while constructing the muslin.
This course will also assist those students who are building a portfolio for acceptance into a fashion design program.
