Introduction to Patterns Making / Creating other styles from an existing garment

I want to draw my own styles and create variations of an existing pattern already adjusted to my measurements.

Materials: Tutorial and paper included. 2 meters of muslin included
Price: $295 taxes included
This course is an introduction to the techniques that will allow you to add style elements to existing sewing patterns. This course is for those who wish to be able to copy existing clothes and develop variations through flat cutting techniques. The content of this course is a condensed and simplified version of the teachings given in Fashion Design programs, but tailored to the needs of our students who seek to explore the wonderful world of design for themselves, for the fun of it. Please note that if you are looking for a professional training or a diploma, this is not that our mandate.
A session of 5 classes that will help you to learn the basics of pattern drafting:
Course 1: How to copy an existing garment. Drafting a pattern from a garment that you like and fits you well.
Course 2: Examining the basic rules of a good fit. Making a fitting muslin and correcting the pattern.
Homework: Style research and selection of a style you would like to develop during the last class.
Course 3: Exploring different pattern drawing techniques on miniatures (modification of the lengths, creation of yokes, dart transfer, adding flare and volume).
Course 4: Exploration of different pattern drawing techniques on miniatures (creation of pleats and gathers). Drafting a development plan in miniature for your personal project (finalize the development plan as homework if necessary).
Course 5: Developing the sewing pattern of your personal project in real size.
