FAS365 Pattern Cutting I

[2–2, 3 cr.]

This studio course introduces the basic tools of technical design that allow the development of design ideas into 3D fabric prototypes. Students are introduced to the core principles of patternmaking [drafting, measuring, fitting, draping, basic garment construction, fabric properties alteration, and pattern cutting]. Demonstrations include exercises aimed at developing a comprehensive understanding of how pattern manipulation impacts the silhouette and details of a garment. The second half of the semester is spent developing individual design concepts and putting principles learned into practice, including fitting the garments onto the body.
