Flat Patternmaking

Greetings Readers!

Soul Collections had a Lot going on this Month to kickstart the New Year Twenty Twelve!! Very excited Beginner's Sewing Group :) Everyone sharing valuable information like www.freecycle.org where people can trade or recycle their things sharing & giving. In Intermediate Sewing, Zee learned to adjust the Commercial Pant Pattern to her customized Fit & Krystle branches out into her new Career path in Menswear Design :) Krystle showed me her 1st Portfolio she made taking a 1 semeser course @ F.I.T. & I wanted to Keep it!!!! Krystle finished her 1st pair of Classic Tailored Men's Pants to show in order to get into the program. And she said, if not, she will continue to take classes to get where she needs to go!! I love her attitude. It's all about Determination & you can do Anything!

Mary is off to a Great start in Advanced Specializations making her 1st Vintage Inspired Coat! And she is also taking Pant Patternmaking @ Soul Collection's fulfilling her dreams in learning all aspects of Sewing & Patternmaking in her Career path as a Costume Design History Teacher :) 

Pel, Sabine & Henry are all taking Flat Patternmaking from Men's Patternmaking (Soul Collection's now offers Men's Flat Patternmaking) to Creative Design Patternmaking as Henry begins to bring his designs to Life, and Pel increases his knowledge in the beginning stages through to Creative Design. 

Sabine is in her final stages of her 8 piece Slopers. Sabine is learning Patternmaking to help her make Patterns true to her size & height. We have tested her upper body Slopers making them into Patterns & cutting them out in Muslin. We made an adjustment @ the Front & Back Shoulder Seams to rebalance her Patterns front to back. Upon recutting the Muslin & trying back on the Back Neck was gapping, so I pinned out the excess gap & slashed the Pattern frm Top to Bottom closing the Neck Width of the pinned amount & Opening @ the Sweep & it Fits Perfectly!!

And last but certainly not least, Kemi is beginning her Career path learning Technical Design through Soul Collection's Intensive Technical Design Training Course, which has been my Professional Career for 13+ years in Intimate Apparel/Sleepwear.  Focus in this course is on Fit (Correcting & Evaluating the Best Fit for the Customer targeted) and on Sewing Construction. Kemi would start off first as an Intern, Freelancer or Assistant Technical Designer working her way up to a Technical Designer, I have to say is the best field I could have ever chosen upon graduating from F.I.T. :)
