About the course

Pattern making is a versatile skill that not only helps you understand commercial patterns better, but also allows you to modify them and duplicate garments you've simply seen. Maybe you are in theater and need to create a historical garment for a show. Maybe you really like to go all out for Halloween. Maybe you have expensive taste but not the budget. Maybe you struggle to find clothes in your size or in colors and patterns you like. Maybe you're a mom with growing children who you wand to dress uniquely. By taking this class you will be able to replicate anything you see, whether it's in a museum or a department store. Additionally, these skills are transferable to film, armor and prop making which is especially useful to the DIY-er, cosplayer or jack of all trades.
