You will learn how to manipulate muslin, create Darts, how to mark muslin, which will then be used to draft a pattern.
Even though this is primarily a basic course, I will also shows you some more advanced techniques such as draping a circle skirt and a basic dress. The transferring of muslin to dotted paper is also demoed.
Draping is an awesome way to be creative and get amazing ideas while doing it. Experimenting with the fabric (or muslin) can inspire you to come up with new and very original designs.

The draping process is a very creative technique which inspires and empowers the student to be more creative, innovative and have fun in the process. Learning how to Drape is an intuitive and spontaneous way to create new designs and come up with new ideas.
Learning how to be a great fashion designer includes the learning of the Draping process and technique. The use of fabric as a way to "mold" it to a dress form is inspiring and creative when it comes to inventing new designs for that famous "Red Carpet Event" known as "The Oscars" -- those designs worn by those Celebrities were once Draped on a Dress Form.
Those beautiful evening gowns seen on the "Red Carpet" most likely were draped first, then through the process of fitting them on the actual body of the person wearing it, refined and perfected to fit correctly.
This Course starts with the basics: draping the basic bodice: One-Dart and Two-Dart Bodice, but then it moves into using more complex techniques such as draping the "Circle Skirt" which requires a little more practice to perfect.
This Course aims not only to teach, but also inspire students to use Draping techniques to be creative, innovative, and become a great Fashion Designer.
