On-Campus Saturday Course
The Patterns and Garments Level 2 course will add to the foundation laid down in Pattern Making and Garment Construction Level 1, fleshing out your basic knowledge while bringing in your input into the design, patterning and construction process. You will be guided through the process of adapting a found image/ combination of images into your preferred design, adapting the basic block for your client or your own measurements and translating that design into a working and then final pattern.
Participants will then undergo the exciting process of cutting and sewing up their personal design. The course culminates with a fitting session, where garments are tested for fit and finish. If you want to sew garments up for yourself or a client with ease, this is the course for you! At the end of this short course we will cover simple dress styles, basic pants and loose over-garments.
