Description

This is an optional class intended for students who want to see how the body is divided for clothing design. If you have purchased a form or are considering buying one this class will teach you how to mark and tape the torso before you begin to work.

If you have no need for a form you can skip this class and go directly to draping on a friend or family member. Students who take this class will gain better understanding of how to divide the figure for garment design.

Note: This is a how to demonstration that will walk you through steps of marking your form. The class is presented in real time with moments shown in high speed video, 4 times faster than real time. The high speed scenes allow you to see the process without skipping much of the process.

Fashion Design through Patternmaking

I love to make patterns, plain and simple. As a creative person I have explored many modes of expression, Metal smithing, Fine Art, Photography, Public Access T.V. production, Theater, Stage Craft, Lighting design, Sound production, DJing, Ballroom dancing, Clowning and Flow but my favorite is Fashion Design, more specifically pattern drafting for clothing. It's just fun for me to look at something in a magazine in 2-d knowing that the model and garment is in 3-d and thinking about how it breaks down in 2-d as a flat pattern.

Flat pattern design is one of the most important skills a garment designer can acquire. Without the skill of drafting patterns you can not translate sketched ideas into reality. Understanding cut simplifies the design process when thinking in terms of the 3-d architecture you want to achieve with your garments or collection of garments. Silhouette (Line) and Form are 3-d elements that fashion designers and critics always refer to when describing a group of clothing but it is all built on the 2-d plain before it can be worn.

As for my credentials, I have five years experience teaching pattern drafting by hand in the Community College classroom. Having moved on from my post at the College I am now free to share my knowledge with you, here on UDEMY.

Thank you for investigating my course and Ill see you in class.
