Pattern Cutting قص البترون

This hands-on course will introduce students to the basic techniques of two-dimensional flat pattern cutting. Students will learn the fundamentals of flat pattern making for creating three-dimensional shapes by learning pattern cutting methods, terminology, drafting a block, altering patterns, as well as cut and construction methods.

This course will also introduce students to the fundamentals of creating a pattern from a three-dimensional drape. Often referred to as the reverse method, draping on the mannequin allows the designer to see the effect of gravity on the fabric and see a design come to life before producing the actual garment. Students will drape fabric onto a mannequin, and learn various methods and techniques to transfer the draped design onto paper in order to create a pattern.
