Basic Patterns is a series of 10 modules and 24 lessons, that walk you through the pattern step by step so that you can work with them with confidence. Each lesson is packed with explanations to demystify common confusions to help you maximize a pattern, especially its size and its fit. This course is comprehensive and in-depth, with lessons that will teach you how to: Choose the right pattern for your project How to take your measurements How to size your pattern How to choose the right fabric and notions for your project Interfacing and how to use it How to read a pattern, its symbols and its legend The core concepts of grainline and fold line Principles for pattern layout Principles for cutting out your pattern How to fit your pattern And so much more!
I also have included a modules on fabric selection, knitwear patterns vs woven fabric patterns, how to prepare your fabric before you cut it. And I created a special advanced module to teach you how the pattern will fit, and troubleshoot common fitting pitfalls that lead to major disappointment in the beginning. These lessons are core issues that I’ve seen many students face and I’ve worked hard to explain and demystify these problems before they start causing set backs for you in your sewing practice.
