anyone know about flat pattern class?
Can anyone explain to me what a class called Flat Pattern is supposed to teach? I have asked the instructor several times but she keeps saying the same things and since I don’t know what this is about I don’t know what kinds of questions to ask. I guess we are supposed to make a cardboard figure one quarter real size. How will that help me with fitting problems? Is this only if you want to make your own designs/patterns or will it help me to adjust commercial patterns to fit me Before I waste time and fabric only to discover the pattern won’t fit? I have no interest in making my own patterns but I do get frustrated in the way purchased patterns fit, even if you measure them before cutting out the fabric, things don’t always add up. I guess my real question is what is the best way to get purchased patterns to fit? Trial and error or will this flat pattern class do the trick? I am unemployed and spending $195.00 right now on another class that promises a lot but doesn’t produce results is not too appealing. I have taken classes with this instructor before and frankly, the classes have been a waste of time. Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks!
