garment 201 series: intro to pattern drafting

Learn the basics of pattern drafting in this brand new class!  Join the newest member of our team, Nancy (formerly of Fabricland fame!) to learn how to take your measurements and draft a simple garment pattern.  You'll learn how to properly take your measurements, use them to draft a flat pattern of your jacket, create the needed pattern pieces, then sew the garment to completion.

Depending on your fabric choice, you can achieve different looks with this jacket:  choose a quilted jacquard to make an open-front coat (like our sample photo), choose a rayon or cotton for a soft kimono-style, or choose a light canvas for a blazer-type look!  Garment is unlined with accent fabric at the cuffs only.  You'll use a serger to finish the inside seams.

Please note: The first class is 2.5 hours; remaining classes are 2 hours each.
