Description

As a full day of training, the Draped Dress Patterns workshop will introduce students to pattern manipulation techniques that produce sophisticated styles for evening and daywear. This workshop is suitable for students with basic pattern making skills or the pre-requisite workshop Basic Pattern Making. This is where flat pattern making techniques meet creative drape.

Emphasis is placed on achieving good fit utilising both straight and bias grain styles. Students will witness the creative pattern making process that turns a simple dress into a complex draped dress.  In particular the fitted bodice block will be manipulated to produce clever and sophisticated styles suitable for high-end fashion product.  For examples of the interesting designs we will cut in the workshop have a look at our blog; well-suited.

These are the design options you have to work on during the session:

Wrap Layer Top | Classic Drape Dress 

Jersey Twist Patterns | Two Layer Jersey | Cowl Tee

All students receive a detailed workbook covering all the days training and more. Pattern making materials and equipment are provided for use at the studio during the workshop at no extra charge.

This workshop does not cover sewing or the detail of achieving your own personal fit but focusses on pattern making adaptations for these draped designs to industry standard. Achieving your own personal fit blocks is covered in Personal block Development Workshops.

Basic elements of how to add in a drape feature. Great individualised workshop. Anita loves to share her skills and knowledge.

If you have patternmaking experience, this is a wonderful class to extend your skills. I've been dreaming of dresses ever since.

Anita was very patient and helpful, her knowledge was amazing and she was able to teach on a very practical level. She was able to give me industry contacts so I can buy items that only the "industry" know about. This was a most enjoyable day of learning and I was able to go home a apply what I have learned. I would happily recommend the Studio to any aspiring sewing or pattern-marker.
