For graduates of Flat Pattern (FP) Design only, this class uses a tissue-fitting and sloper method to learn how to make pants that fit your body. We will be using a full set of body measurements, so be sure to wear an inner layer of leggings and a camisole to the first class. You will be stripping down to this inner layer in order to get accurate measurements to select your correct pattern size.

Our Flat Pattern Design series is for the female student with significant apparel sewing experience, and Flat Pattern Design must be taken prior to taking FP II or FP III.

IMPORTANT:  Your first class will focus on measuring your body.  Wear the same undergarments that you wear on any normal day, as well as leggings and a camisole for more accurate measurements.

Be sure to purchase your fabric and other supplies from Silk Road Textiles!
