Courses and Descriptions


Draping is defined as "creating clothing on a dress form without the use of a pattern". Draping is one of the most fascinating ways to experiment with fabric, body curves and design ideas. We will use 1/2 scale dress forms in class to learn the beginning steps and move forward during the day to a range of design ideas.

Supplies to bring to class: Three (3) yards light weight, lightly colored cotton fabrics like muslin. Please have fabrics pressed and ready for use. Fabric scissors, small and large sizes, straight pins, pin cushion, lead pencil, hand sewing needle, a spool of any colour thread.

The kit fee is included.
