I have taken Pattern Making Level I and am thinking of taking Pattern Making Level II. I spoke to some who has taken the three levels in Pattern Making and they think that taking a draping class first might help me get a better understanding of how pattern making works. I sometimes have an issue when looking at a picture of something that a pattern needs to be created and not knowing where I may have take away a dart from somewhere and placing it somewhere else. They felt that doing the draping class may help me better understand how pattern making works. I just finished a course in doing a woman’s jacket and am going to start sewing a lot more than I have been doing. I know that sewing more will also help but I thought that a draping course might be beneificial before going into Pattern Making Level II. I have Helen Armstrong’s book but it does not always help. Also, does anyone know if there is a video about pattern making around?
