Patternmaking

On the Fall of 2011 the fashion class is Patternmaking. I am having a lot of fun and a lot of practice as I am using the tools and knowledge acquired in class to improve my products for the opera of this season.

At the Patternmaking class we learn how to build, from scratch, the 2D patterns for basic shirts, pants, jackets and so on as well as how to modify, where to add, remove and create our own style.

This is a class that I just could not wait any longer to take because I’m a perfectionist. That is a horrible trait as I end up paralized by the idea of perfection and was never able to accomplish much. Now I am not only learning how to create the patterns, but also how to let the fabric speak for itself. Can’t control the fabric. That thing has a mind of its own!

Stay tuned!
