Fashion Design

Learn the principles of fashion design using flat pattern techniques to create fashions. The finished product of this course is a garment that you have designed.


This course involves:

  • using a basic pattern to create different styles in a paper pattern and then in half-scale garments,
  • creating a personalized pattern (sloper) that fits you,
