Draft It Yourself with Leigh Kanara
November 4, 2017 @ 12:00 am - 11:59 pm$110
90% of skirt styles derive from manipulating a simple skirt foundation pattern.
In Draft It Yourself, learn pattern-making principles to take a simple straight skirt pattern and draft your own patterns for a flared or A-line skirt, an asymmetric panelled skirt, as well as a skirt with a pleated detail. The principles covered will surely inspire you to create your own designs, too! Draft It Yourself will suit students who are new to pattern-making, yet already have sound experience in assembling garment components from commercial patterns instructions. Class time will be purely devoted to drafting your pattern styles, ready for you to cut and sew independently at home.
The following items will be provided: paper for patterns, full scale and 3rd scale cardboard foundation pattern blocks. Students will work with an industry sized foundation block closest to their body measurements. Please pop into the shop so hip and waist measurements can be taken by staff, and your pattern block can be prepared well before the workshop. Students may email or phone their measurements through, please take care with accuracy here.
