RECREATIONAL FASHION DESIGNERS MAKE PATTERNS LIKE THE PROS – ONLY BETTER!

CADterns® CUSTOM CLOTHING Inc. today announces readiness for first semester of personal patternmaking lessons on-line. Q: What or who are Recreational Fashion Designers? A: Anyone who sews apparel for her self and family, without pay. Seamstresses in home workshops everywhere apply principles and elements of design with every project. Someone else may have drafted the pattern, but she makes all the design decisions from hem length, to colour and texture of fabric, to size and placement of buttons and so forth. So, can a recreational designer really make better fashions than the pros? How? Well, some recreational designers and some pros. The secret lies in the sloper. A professional designer must appeal to and fit as many people as possible with each fashion item. A recreational seamstress doesn’t have these limitations. The recreational seamstress might be inspired by something manufactured under a designer label, but she makes all of the design decisions from style lines and fabric to trimming and accessories. You too can learn how to style sewing patterns for your own Signature Originals. You will style slopers into patterns just like the pros using the CADterns Fit-FIRST system of personal patternmaking. Better yet, by starting with your own personal slopers, you make your own PERSONAL patterns. Best of all: NO MATH REQUIRED! Metamorphosing a fitted sloper into a fitted pattern may be easier than you think. We’ll start small (quarter scale) and practice with paper using a variety of weights and colours. Why not start collecting samples today? What have you got to lose? Enrolment requires a computer with email access, a digital sloper (available in class if needed), a printer, and $50.00 enrolment fee. If you enjoy sewing but want an alternative to traditional patterns, this marriage of computers and sewing patterns is just what you need.
