Objectives: Untitled document
Students will be able to:
 
1. Interpret flat sketches of garment designs to determine the required pattern pieces for the style.
2. Compare body measurements, pattern piece dimensions, fitting ease, and style ease in order to
    achieve proper fit.
3. Create several slopers in tag paper to use for developing patterns for a variety of garment
    styles.
4. Manipulate the basic sloper using flat pattern method to create patterns for garments and their
    various parts including, but not limited to: tops, skirts, dresses, sleeves, collars, facings, and
    button plackets.
5. Produce a production-ready garment pattern, with accurate labeling and markings, which can
    be used in the apparel industry.
