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.
Meet your instructor, Suzy Furrer, and learn more about the necklines and techniques covered in your class.
Suzy discusses the fit and features of the boat neckline, then jumps right into drafting one, both front and back. She also explains the wide neckline rule, which you'll use again and again in your patternmaking.
Drafting a V neckline requires a little extra measuring and adjusting for a perfect fit and clean lines. Suzy shows you how to get even a chevron-striped V-neck just right.
