FAS461 Final Project Seminar

[2–2, 4 cr.]

This intermediate studio introduces the core principles and practices required in the cutting and production of soft tailoring and outerwear. This course takes the student through the essential stages required in the production of structured and unstructured outerwear garments paying particular attention to the impact of fabric choices on the cutting process. During the first half of the semester students learn about the importance of balance and fit as well as developing skills centered on understanding collars, two- piece sleeves and linings. The second half of the studio is spent realizing patterns for the production of garments selected from Design III, of which one piece will be outerwear. Students learn through demonstrations, practical exercises and tutorials.
