INTRODUCTION

Pattern making will be presented as an essential tool for the construction of a garment, where the techniques, the shape, the body and the volume elements provide students with interesting information which they will then use to develop their creativity when designing a garment.

Students will work on the concept of patterns. They will learn its codes so they can later extrapolate them to any other structure and so they can work within the fashion industry.
