COURSE DESCRIPTION

This course is designed to help students acquire skills in the making and adaptation of patterns for various garment designs. Students would be taken through the procedures for accurate body measurement taking, ways of obtaining patterns and importance of pattern making in garment designing. In addition, students would be exposed to pattern markings and symbols and their meanings as well as design analysis. Students would also go through practical pattern adaptation skills.

 

OBJECTIVES

By the end of the course learners are expected to;

  1. demonstrate and practice the proper procedure for taking body measurements
  2. demonstrate skills in pattern making
  3. demonstrate how to mark patterns
  4. apply the skills in pattern designing to the production of patterns for various

garment designs.

  1. develop a high standard of accuracy and neatness needed in the development of

patterns.

  1. appreciate the importance of patterns in garment designing.

 

METHODS

Learners are to be guided through a series of exercises, in body measurement taking, pattern drafting of basic blocks and the adaptation of patterns for various garment sections and designs.  Students would make use of the half-scale sloper patterns to practice pattern adaptation skills. Learners will work through a series of exercises in all basic areas of pattern development, bodices, sleeves, skirts, collars, pants and sheath garments. Students are to keep practice notebooks/portfolio to be turned in at the end of the semester.
