I am so excited! The online classes will be starting October 1, 2020!
The pants are the first section that will be open for registration! In these courses students will start with the basic pattern draft for the front and back complete with the storyboards, yes the dreaded storyboards! They are a part of the course for two reasons 1) they get the students to practice
2) they are a great reference to use especially at the beginning rather than trying to do it from memory.
Anyway the courses have step-by-step videos on how to draft, mark, trace the pattern pieces; how to cut, mark and sew the mock-up plus the most important aspect of all HOW TO FIT THE BODY! I provide generic measurements for students to start with and then they will be drafting using personal measurements their own pants, how cool is that?!
The platform is Teachable, emails will be going out very shortly with all the details, pricing etc.
It has been a very steep learning curve I have to say... but so worth it in the end I feel such a sense of accomplishment. This is only the beginning, I plan to have all of book 1 online in good time...
