Discover why draping is the secret to truly fit the body and develop basic draping and patternmaking skills with hands on experience. Create a draped bodice (back and front) using a standard dress form, then turn the resulting muslin into a pattern using garment industry techniques. The resulting sloper is what designers use as a foundation for patternmaking with custom-developed pattern blocks. You’ll even learn how to manipulate darts using cutting and spreading.
