This blog is aimed, specifically, at teaching students of fashion design how to make close-fit stretch-wear patterns. While the public can certainly learn a lot from reading the blog, they may find they need the added guidance of an "in class" fashion teacher ... I'm not going to provide this level of instruction.
Everything you need to design women's swim or dancewear patterns is already here. By combining the various elements of each lesson a design student should be able to create any number of designs. I will not be adding new patterns unless it becomes necessary for one of my classes.
If you'd like to keep in touch with like minded creative people then feel free to add me as a friend on facebook ... I love to see what others are doing ... just type Pattern School as the message and I'll know to add you.
My experiment in alternative fashion can be seen at Itty Bitty Evil Kitty ... please drop by and add your opinions and help shape the experiment.
Hi, I stumbled on your site in a search for ‘dancewear patterns’. I’m very thankful for that. My little girl has just started ballet and I was blown away by the pricing of dancewear locally, Astronomical! As an intermediate sewer I know I’m going to learn from your writings and bring down those prices. Thank you
Thank you, Thank you and THANK YOU for being so open about all you have learned and so easily share it with all of us. I have just started sowing again since the 70′s—-now retired and have the time to really enjoy it and I am so fortunate to have found your Webb site. Thank you.
I have tons of questions but will continue on reading first. Whistle5
