The student will learn basic patternmaking skills using the Flat Pattern Method. A basic fitting pattern is developed and used to create patterns for original, individual designs.  Patterns for skirts, pants, tops, dresses, sleeves, collars, and knits are discussed. Construction of a garment from an original design and pattern required.

COURSE CONTENT

Outcomes and Objectives:
Upon completion of the course, students will be able to:
Untitled document
Upon completion of the course, students will be able to:
1.  Apply the basic skills of flat pattern making to interpret a garment design and successfully translate it into a paper pattern and a final, completed garment.
2.  Compare body measurements to pattern pieces in order to make necessary alterations for a proper fit, for themselves or for others.
3.  Create a basic sloper used for pattern design which will fit their personal body proportions.
4.  Interpret three-dimensional garment designs into two-dimensional "flat" pattern pieces.
5.  Manipulate the basic sloper pattern to create patterns for various parts of a garment, including, but not limited to: bodices, skirts, pants, sleeves, collars, and dresses.
6.  Create a final pattern with accurate markings, including grainlines and seam allowances, which could be used and understood by others.
7.  Demonstrate the above processes by designing 2 full-scale garments from their personal sloper and completing one garment in fashion fabric.
8.  Research some ways in which computers are used in flat pattern development in the fashion industry.
9.  Based on subsequent repeats, students will be able to apply techniques to:
       a. increasingly complex applications
       b. increasingly complex patterns
       c. fabric manipulation with a variety of fabric textures
       d. increasingly complex fitting issues and adjustments
       e. gain confidence and speed

Assignments:
Untitled document
1.  Practice pattern designs in 1/4'' or 1/2'' scale (6-half scale; 1-sloper/foundation; 1-final full scale pattern fashion garment)
2.  Complete a fitting shell and personal cardboard sloper
3.  Complete 2 garment designs including 2 full scale paper patterns with complete and accurate markings
4.  Create a garment in fabric using one of the 2 patterns
5.  Read from text; 5 to 15 pages per week
6.  Quizzes (2 to 3), mid-term
7.  Repeating students will be expected to produce more complex projects

Methods of Evaluation/Basis of Grade.
