Complete your patternmaking foundation. Join Apparel Arts founder Suzy Furrer as she builds on her Patternmaking Basics and Patternmaking + Design: Creative Darts & Seam Lines classes to guide you through drafting, fitting, truing and marking neckline styles such as boat, Grecian, funnel, opera, V-neck, sweetheart, cornered and more! Then, hone your patternmaking prowess even further as you create custom dress patterns. Draft a surplice dress with a V-neckline, chevron stripes and a full skirt with a facing. Move on to a boat-neck dress with a tulip skirt, a lining and an underlining. Finally, draft a strapless dress with two flounces, boning for added bodice stiffness and a waist stay. Learn the skills to draft designer neckline styles and striking dresses, blouses, T-shirts and tunics.
