Course Description


This Course is PART 5 of: Pattern Making for Fashion Design AND Advanced Draping.

It is a combination of Pattern Making AND Advanced Draping. 

If you have not taken any of my previous Courses, such as Pattern Making 1, 2, 3, 4, and Draping, and you know nothing about pattern making/draping…. this course might be challenging for you…. So, I encourage you to enroll in some Pattern Making/Draping Courses…

This Course will cover:

  • Bias. Bias cut Designs
  • Asymmetrical Designs. One Shoulder Dress
  • Peg Skirt, with Pleats
  • Cowl Skirt on Side Seam
  • Adjusting and modifying pattern measurements
  • Spaghetti straps
  • Bias Binding
  • Bias Piping
  • Bias Grainlines
  • "Truing" pleats
  • Inspirational advice and direction

In this course you will learn about Bias. Bias grainline. Cutting garments on the Bias. Properties of Bias-cut dresses. Designer Madeleine Vionnet. Bias tape. Bias piping. Spaghetti straps. Loop turner. And we’ll design a Bias Top.

You will also learn about: Asymmetrical Designs. I will demo and drape a One Shoulder Dress. CF on Bias. R.S.U./Right-Side-Up.

And I will show you how to make a: Peg Skirt with Pleats- a 2-Part Demo. I will first Drape a Peg Skirt, then I will show you how create one using Patten Drafting. “Truing” the muslin drape accurately in order to achieve accurate patterns.

I will demo how to Drape a Skirt with a Cowl on the side seam, and side seam on the bias — a unique and dramatic design.

We will cover adjusting and modifying a pattern to fit specific measurements, whether you’re making garments for yourself or designing something for a specific customer.

You should have some previous knowledge of Pattern Drafting and/or Draping before enrolling in this Course. Please review my previous Courses so that you can understand and absorb the material in a supportive and empowering way.

You should have the proper TOOLS necessary to draft patterns and draping, such as scissors, pins, measuring tape and ruler(s), muslin or similar fabric, pencils, pattern paper would be helpful, tape, etc.

Having a Dress Form would be very helpful, as the draping part of this Course will be demoed on a Dress Form (but if you only want to learn the theory behind these designs and these techniques, that’s fine too, that’s up to you).

I’m very excited to share this Course with you as it is the first one that combines Pattern Making AND Draping. See you in class! Ciao!
