A Working Pattern
If you’re interested in learning how to sew your own clothes, then sign up for a pattern making class with Elizapesi! She’s a master at her craft and can teach you everything you need to know. In this article, we’ll discuss the four stages of sewing patterns: line drawing, working pattern, development pattern, and production pattern.
The first step in sewing patterns is to create a line drawing of the garment you want to sew. This is also sometimes called a fashion sketch. You’ll need to know the measurements of your body and the fabric you’ll be using in order to create an accurate line drawing.
Once you have your line drawing, you’ll need to create a working pattern. This is the sewing pattern that you’ll use to cut out your fabric and sew your garment. It’s important to make sure that your working pattern is accurate so that your garment will fit properly.
After you’ve created a working pattern, you may want to make some changes to it. This is called developing the pattern. For example, you may want to add darts or change the neckline.
Once you’re happy with your development pattern, you can create a production pattern. This is the final sewing pattern that will be used to mass-produce your garment if that is your goal.
Sewing patterns can seem daunting at first, but with Elizapesi’s help, you’ll be sewing your own clothes in no time!
CREATIVE PATTERN MAKING
In this class, you will learn how to create both flat patterns and draped patterns in a more creative way. Rather than following step-by-step instructions, you will experiment with flat pattern cutting and draping to create a unique and creative pattern.
