Learn to take personal measurements to be used to draft a Skirt, Trouser or Jean block/sloper. Each block will be cut in muslin and fitted to the individual. The fitting will be checked and any pattern adjustments will be applied to the draft. The draft will then be transferred onto card to be used to develop patterns. Use 1/2 scale blocks to learn how to manipulate blocks into various styles before developing a full scale personal Skirt or Pant pattern. After the pattern is completed, the design will be cut in muslin and sewn up for a fitting. The sequence of construction will be developed while constructing the muslin. This course will assist those students who are building a portfolio for acceptance into a fashion design program.
