Draping I

Robin Forsythe gives a little more info about her upcoming Draping I class. You also might want to check out her lovely clothing line and blog, Estate. Her work is lovely, full of modern grace and oh so wearable!

In this series of classes, you’ll learn how to drape the fabric on the dress form to create slopers – basic patterns that can then be used to create other patterns. We’ll drape a bodice, skirt, and torso sloper in class. You’ll learn some terminology, what ease is and how much to use, how to create darts, how to mark your muslin and transfer it onto a flat pattern. It’s really just another method for pattern making. Some experience in pattern making would be helpful.

I love this method of pattern making because once you learn it, you see instantly if what you are creating is what you have envisioned.
