 Pattern Drafting II

This class will teach students to design and create a garment (skirt, pant, blouse) from existing slopers.
Each student will create a garment (pant, skirt, or blouse) from a basic sloper and learn how design elements, (dart manipulation, sleeves, collars, necklines) translate to the flat pattern. As a final project students will complete a garment from their own designs. Virginia Buck
