Patternmaking + Design: Creative Necklines

with Suzy Furrer
Beautiful necklines and finishing details are marks of an excellent patternmaker. Learn to draft an array of flattering necklines and finishing flourishes.

Complete your patternmaking foundation. Join Apparel Arts founder Suzy Furrer as she builds on her Patternmaking Basics and Patternmaking + Design: Creative Darts & Seam Lines classes to guide you through drafting, fitting, truing and marking neckline styles such as boat, Grecian, funnel, opera, V-neck, sweetheart, cornered and more! Then, hone your patternmaking prowess as you create custom patterns: a surplice dress with a V-neck, chevron stripes and a full skirt with a facing. Move on to a boat-neck dress with a tulip skirt, lining and underlining. Finally, draft a strapless dress with flounces, bodice boning and a waist stay. Learn the skills to draft designer neckline styles and striking dresses, blouses, T-shirts and tunics.

"My name is Cecile, I am French, living in Denmark. I have been sewing for a few years now and am amazed of what I was able to accomplish with these classes. I started with the bodice sloper class and bought all of the others right after. I now have a perfect moulage of myself (which I actually used to make a body form) and now I am starting designing and everything fits so perfectly!!! ... Suzy, you are a wonderful teacher!"
