In this Online Pattern Making  Class you'll learn how to draft a pattern from a sloper (the fashion term for a  basic pattern block). You will learn flat pattern-making techniques using your own measurements, for a custom fit.

This is a great class for those with no skills in pattern-making or for those who sew but with no technical training. It's also great for those that have difficulty getting the perfect fit from commercial patterns or retail clothing. This class gives you a foundation and an understanding of pattern making to create your personal fit block. Your newly created pattern is useful for sewing a well-fittted garment or creating original designs. Or, use it to compare and correct store-bought patterns, easily.
