Continuing Education Course

SEM: 41


Patternmaking I


Students learn to flat patterndraft from sketches, using approved slopers. In today’s industry, this is the fastest and most commonly used method. Students begin with seamless blocks, draft the pattern on dotted paper, add seams, and then transfer to manila for a final hard paper pattern, including an appropriate pattern card. Assignments include sewing the finished pattern in muslin, checking the fit on the dress form and making corrections to the pattern. Mirroring industry techniques, students develop skills expected of a designer and/or a first-pattern patternmaker.

Prerequisite: XFSH3019 Sewing I, XFSH3014 Draping I

First class materials: 18” Graff ruler, scissors (pattern and fabric), mechanical pencil, French curve, pattern notcher, stapler, ¾” Magic Scotch Tape in table dispenser, 8 ½”x11” lined notepaper in a 1” binder, pattern hooks. Text: Patternmaking for Fashion Design by Helen Joseph Armstrong.
