About This Course

In this course, we have used the Natalie Bray pattern making method to teach how to make your own patterns for all sizes and designs.

This course is about using the techniques of pattern making, also known as pattern drafting in fashion, to create patterns that will be used to cut fabrics and ultimately be sewn into garments. Methods and techniques studied in major fashion universities are demonstrated in a clear and simple visual so that anyone interested in learning about fashion design can and will learn the foundational principles of fashion design. New terminologies are clearly explained and applied to the subject matter.

As a fashion designer, pattern making is essential in learning how garments are created and put together. A good fashion designer must learn pattern making in order to really understand the construction of his/her designs.

pattern making is essential in learning about the construction of garments. And by learning pattern making and garment construction can help you in your design process. Knowing pattern making will help you in knowing whats possible and what is not when it comes to designing a garment.

Knowing pattern making is valuable not only in the design room but also in production. If something goes wrong in the factory and the reason is due to pattern mistake, you must know what to do and how to fix the pattern and/or remedy the situation.

Because pattern making is a very specialized skill, and not everyone can do it, the financial compensation for pattern makers is usually very high. A pattern maker is a very valuable asset in a fashion company and is treated with respect and rewarded accordingly.
