Pattern Drafting I Fundamentals - Skirts


Suzy Furrer 

I like the style without the underline as shown in the sewing one. 

The first in our series of pattern drafting classes focuses on enabling students to become proficient in skirt pattern drafting, fit and construction. Drafting and sewing skirts is the easiest subject to build solid foundational skill-building habits in both pattern drafting and construction. Students draft, sew and fit a skirt sloper for themselves or a dress form. Students also complete a production ready pattern and sew a fashion fabric A-line skirt with a waistband, pocket and a zipper closure. 


Expect 2-3 hours of homework between classes.
