Fashion, Fit, Form, and Function: Designing Garments for EveryBODY with Shannon & Jason Mullett-Bowlsby
There are a million patterns in the naked city...yeah...a million...and wouldn’t it be nice if just ONE of them fit?!? Well, my friend, the search is OVER! Shannon and Jason will teach you the basics of fashion, fit, form, and function that we use daily as fashion designers. We're going to go deep into the minds of a designer and show you just what all this fit, ease, and drape talk is all about and what that means to YOU and YOUR body type and shape.

We'll start with making sure you can look at a pattern and KNOW if it's going to work for your body based on how the finished garment will sit on your body and how your body moves around inside the finished garment. You will learn how to make basic alterations to a pattern that you will be able to use for every garment you ever want to make...EVER...did we mention the ever part?

We will cover many questions. What measurements do I take from where and how do I apply them to my pattern? How do I make a garment that fits a certain style or body type? For whom am I making this and where will they wear it? Finally, how to take your swatch and convert that into a pattern.
