FAS362 Pattern Cutting II

[2–2, 4 cr.]

Pattern cutting techniques taught in this intermediate studio elaborate on those in Pattern Cutting I by nurturing an ambitious approach to proportion, silhouette, detailing and volume for denim, jersey and related fabrics. During the first half of the semester students undertake a variety of cutting exercises aimed at understanding the core skills required for working with these fabrics- to understand the specific properties and the impact this has on the pattern cutting process. Classic details in denim will be explored as well as techniques appropriate for working with jersey fabrics. The second half of the semester is devoted to producing patterns that realize concepts from Design II and further develop an understanding of how garments fit the body. Students learn through demonstrations, practical exercises and tutorials.
