"You Can Make It®"
Remember how you had to learn each letter of the alphabet to become an accomplished reader?
The same principle applies to learning how to sew. Students can continue to add on to the set of basics learned in the introductory level and transfer them into commercial patterns (ex: Simplicity, McCall's, Etc.). Students will learn how to take their skills to the next level creating trendy garments to the desired level.
Students will be challenged to learn
1) How to read and interpret directions provided in commercial patterns
2) How to edit a pattern to add or adapt features desired for the final look of the garment
3) How to draft their own pattern to create their very own one-of-a kind look.
NOTE: Students who complete level 1 and move into commercial patterns become eligible for the
judged design challenge held each spring. The winner announce at our annual fashion show in May.
