Learn how to create block sloper patterns using flat pattern-making techniques together with art form of draping. This course will give you all the basic skills you need to create bodices, sleeves, skirts and dresses. On an industry dressform, you'll learn how to measure a body properly and create garments using draping skills and techniques. Then learn how to do simple changes to a basic pattern, aka the sloper (the fashion term for your basic pattern block). This 8-week course is ideal for those beginners or experienced sewers who lack this technical training. Within 8 weeks, you will build a foundation of slopers and pattern-making understanding that you will be able to utilize once you have completed the course. Once you master this art, design to your heart's content! Some designers perfect their work on the table using flat pattern alone. But you'll also learn the excitement of designing in 3D and seeing your ideas come to life right in front of your eyes through draping!
