Fashion Draping

Dressmaking Basics

with Paul Gallo
You are an individual; your clothing should be unique. Learn fashion draping from designer Paul Gallo and create your own dress patterns for an unrivaled look.

Take your garment-making skills to the next level. In Paul's class on fashion draping, you’ll learn techniques for creating a classic fitted dress. Stand beside a fashion-world insider as he creates a muslin drape, transfers it to pattern paper and cuts the pattern from fashion fabric. Instructions to sew the dress are included in the class materials. 

If you’ve been yearning to move your fashion inspirations from idea to reality, this class is for you.
