Pattern Making: Techniques for Beginners

A University of Fashion Title

Francesca Sterlacci, Barbara Arata-Gavere and Barbara Seggio


Pattern making describes the process of creating a two-dimensional garment diagram or template, drafted on a flat surface from either measurements or transferred from a draped muslin. The starting point of a pattern is a sloper, which is used as the template for creating design variations that are subsequently cut and sewn in fabric.

You will learn how to create a basic sleeve sloper before moving on to skirts, bodices, collars and trousers. Each lesson is illustrated in meticulous detail by step-by-step photographs, charts, diagrams and catwalk photos.

Francesca Sterlacci is founder/CEO of the University of Fashion, the first and largest online fashion design video library in the world.

Barbara Arata-Gavere is an Adjunct Professor at the Fashion Institute of Technology, NYC.
