Here is the video from the livestream I did on Sunday about how to learn patternmaking. It’s a value packet hour if I may say so myself and well worth watching if you want to learn more about patternmaking. We covered a lot of ground including my own patternmaking education, the difference between sloper and blocks, drafting patterns for knit fabrics, how patterns are drafted in the fashion industry vs in schools, my book recommendations for pattern drafting books, making patterns by hand vs on the computer and a lot more!
