Classes Included

Patternmaking Basics: The Bodice Sloper (5h 06m)
Take your fashion design education to the next level in this follow-up to Patternmaking Basics: The Skirt Sloper. With Apparel Arts founder Suzy Furrer, you’ll create a moulage, or a precise fabric blueprint of the upper body. Learn to draft both your front and back moulage based on accurate measurements, cut your muslin and assemble it. Then you’ll go step-by-step through refining the fit. With your moulage patterns perfectly customized, you’ll put them to use as you find out how to make a bodice sloper, complete with wearing ease. Suzy will even discuss design options that can be created from your bodice sloper, and how to transform your woven sloper into a knit sloper.

Patternmaking Basics: The Skirt Sloper (4h 45m)
Take the first step toward being your own designer. Learn to draft stylish skirt patterns with Suzy Furrer, founder of Apparel Arts Fashion Design School. Start with how to make a skirt sloper that’s perfectly fitted to your measurements. Then, with Suzy as your guide, use your sloper to draft A-line, bias and circle flared skirts. Draft pleated skirts with inverted box, accordion or knife pleats. Create skirts with silhouettes such as a lowered waist with a contoured waistband, an Empire waistline complete with a facing, or a pencil skirt. Add personality to your pattern with a flounce or peplum, or even draft a wrap skirt. Finish your pattern with details such as pockets, waistbands, facings and linings, and you’re ready to sew a custom skirt you designed yourself!

Patternmaking + Design: The Pants Sloper (3h 21m)
Quilting expert Angela Walters will guide you step by step through quilting pebbles, swirls, squares, feathers, clamshells and ribbon candy, before helping you build on these basic designs to create more complex variations. Use small changes like adding echoing, altering the design layout, combining designs and changing scale to bring new interest to basic designs and an updated look to your quilts. Plus, you can use these modifications on more of your favorite designs to instantly increase your quilting repertoire! Easily tweak basic designs for intriguing visual interest and finish quilts that look anything but simple.
