Bra Pattern Drafting Course
This is a comprehensive video course that follows the drafting and a few of the sloper chapters in the book Bare Essentials: Bras. You should have the book in order to follow and take proper notes to steps in the video course, but students have been able to follow the course without the book as well. If you are utilizing the first or second edition, there are some changes that have been made to the third edition, but you should be able to follow most of the lessons. Just make notes in your older editions to update your information.
I have broken all the videos into small steps. Videos may be as short as 30 seconds but as long as 10 minutes depending on what the discussion is about.
While I do my best to provide the most professional presentation possible, I am doing everything - teaching, filming and editing. As a normal human and a mother, I often mix up my words. I have done my best to note on the screen when I was using the completely incorrect term. I am far from being a Craftsy class, so know what you are getting yourself into - a real human teacher who makes real human mistakes.
This is advanced drafting material. If you have never drafted anything in your life, you will likely struggle with some of the basic terminology and drafting concepts. Please comment with questions at the end of the lesson you have a question on and I will respond and keep the comments live so everyone can benefit from the questions and answers. While I would love to provide unwavering and complete support for this class, I am physically and mentally not able to. I encourage you to join the Facebook group to post pictures and receive feedback on your progress from your peers. I do follow the group and comment when I am available to.
