You will learn about the sloper guidelines and use points of reference in your sketch and on your pattern to draft the most accurate and true-to-sketch pattern. You will learn how to draw and add fullness, such as gathers and pleats, into your designs, as well as add style lines that do and don’t incorporate the dart intake. You will have so much fun with the exercises and quizzes in class that test your dart manipulation knowledge and enable you to learn more effectively. Register here to join me.
