Event description
Learn techniques used in the fashion industry to create a professional pattern for a garment by draping. A 2-day masterclass in Fremantle.

About this Event

Starting with an image or sketch of a garment is a common way to work in luxury fashion and draping is a creative way to achieve a visual of the volume and silhouette. Create your own professional pattern for a garment by draping on the stand in this two-day workshop with professional couture pattern cutter Alice Cliff.

Day One: Choose one of the three images provided for your task. Analyse the image or sketch, mark out some style lines on the stand and start draping with calico. Step back to review the work and make any final adjustments. I will also be demonstrating different ways to achieve pleats, tucks, fitted shaping and bold volumes. Mark the drape in preparation for the pattern.

Day Two: Transfer the drape to paper to make a pattern. Cut out the pattern in fabric and pin to the stand to check the drape

Skill Level:

Suitable for people who have used commercial patterns before and would like to further their skills to creating their own patterns, and people who would like to become professional pattern cutters.
