Event description

Description

Flat pattern making is the study of garment construction in the two-dimensional form. In this 4 week course, students will learn the basics of drafting block patterns along with proper garment construction and the fundamentals of fit. These lessons will provide the know-how to adapt and manipulate patterns to begin developing designs that are ready for assembly.

Students will begin with drafting slopers for the skirt and bodice top. Slopers are the building blocks essential to creating any variation of a garment. This course is meant to be taken in tandem with our draping course to give students a full understanding of taking the three-dimensional form and transferring it into a two-dimensional flat pattern. These 2 courses are just the first step and are meant to be built upon in our pattern making and draping 102 courses.

All materials for this course will be included in the class fee. Students will each be provided a pattern drafting kit that will include fabric, rulers, French curve, tracing wheel, pencil, drafting paper, etc. Please expect homework in between classes in the form of sewing the basic skirt and bodice for review.

Pre-Requisite: Must have a domestic home sewing machine and have the ability to thread it and sew up basic seams.

Instructor: Mojgant Tavalali has an international degree in fashion design. She opened her own fashion design institute in Iran where she taught hundreds of students pattern making and sewing. In 2010, she came to the United States and has worked as a pattern maker and sample maker for many designers, institutions and organizations including Sew Valley. Mojigant specializes in flat pattern making and manipulation and has over 40+ years of experience sewing for production as well as custom fabrication.
