With this Pattern Making method, students start with a commercial pattern and immediately fit garments to their own proportions and learn about how to change and adjust patterns for the design, silhouette needed.

This method focusses on a perfect fit. Following fit, students will learn about how to create various sleeve shapes, necklines, details such as ruching. 

With a basic commercial pattern, you will be able to make garments with so many variations like a blouse with V-Neck or round neck, with sleeves, and without sleeves, the variations are endless!
