Learn the fundamentals of draping pants as you work along with Joe to create a basic straight pant using a body form. This includes learning about taking proper measurements, comparing them to the body form, calculating for and drawing the initial pattern from those measurements and then tweaking it on the form itself. Complete the creation of several pant styles in class, working in groups of 3 or 4: straight leg, cigarette, palazzo and discuss darts and the conversion to pleats. You will leave with all the tools and knowledge to drape your own pants on your body double at home.
