Patternmaking Basics: The Skirt Sloper
Take the first step toward being your own designer. Learn to draft stylish skirt patterns with Suzy Furrer, founder of Apparel Arts Fashion Design School. Start with how to make a skirt sloper that’s perfectly fitted to your measurements. Then, with Suzy as your guide, use your sloper to draft A-line, bias and circle flared skirts. Draft pleated skirts with inverted box, accordion or knife pleats. Create skirts with silhouettes such as a lowered waist with a contoured waistband, an Empire waistline complete with a facing, or a pencil skirt. Add personality to your pattern with a flounce or peplum, or even draft a wrap skirt. Finish your pattern with details such as pockets, waistbands, facings and linings, and you’re ready to sew a custom skirt you designed yourself!

Patternmaking Basics: The Bodice Sloper
Take your fashion design education to the next level in this follow-up to Patternmaking Basics: The Skirt Sloper. With Apparel Arts founder Suzy Furrer, you’ll create a moulage, or a precise fabric blueprint of the upper body. Learn to draft both your front and back moulage based on accurate measurements, cut your muslin and assemble it. Then you’ll go step-by-step through refining the fit. With your moulage patterns perfectly customized, you’ll put them to use as you find out how to make a bodice sloper, complete with wearing ease. Suzy will even discuss design options that can be created from your bodice sloper, and how to transform your woven sloper into a knit sloper.

Patternmaking + Design: The Pants Sloper
Learn to draft a custom pant sloper and use it to create two on-trend pattern variations alongside Apparel Arts founder Suzy Furrer. Start simple with how to take accurate measurements and transform them into the waist shaping, dart placement, crotch curve and seam lines for your sloper. Suzy will also guide you through truing up your sloper and making a muslin to refine it for a perfect fit. Then, you’ll see how to transfer your sloper onto more durable paper, and add all the markings you need to create patterns you’ll wear again and again. Plus, put your sloper to use as Suzy teaches you how to make a pants pattern for timeless trousers or on-trend cigarette pants.
