Pattern Drafting Instruction & Resources
Do you have a desire to learn how the patterndrafting process works, how to alter patterns, make them for yourself, make your own product line, or even how to fine tune patterns for proper fit? APM owner, Traci Anderson has taught patterning courses over the last ten years at several local colleges and universities while also specializing as a Patternmaker/Technical Designer in the field.
Through out the years students have applied their new skill sets while in these courses. By creating various sloper types from scratch, fitting slopers to body proportions, altering their slopers to achieve desired fit, and designing/fitting their own products from them. Students have gone from beginners with no experience to designing their own patterns from concepts to sewing up garments and presenting to classes in less than a year.
