Cut, Sew & Make

Spring 2020

Taught By: Sofia Kavalerchik

Section: A

CRN: 5786

Credits: 3

In this course, we will learn how to develop design ideas into 3D fabric prototypes. We will begin by covering the basic tools and practices associated with technical design; these include pattern drafting, draping, basic garment construction, and the taking of accurate measurements for “specs” and “tech-packs.” We will also explore how different fabric weights and drapes inform design outcomes, and the methods for altering fabrics’ properties to achieve desired effects. Following this introduction, we will draft and fully construct a basic garment that applies these basic principles and techniques. A final project that incorporates the key components and methods of technical design will be proposed by the student, and may be a garment or similar, related form(s) in fabric. Class time will be devoted to observing demonstrations, reviewing and analyzing work, and realizing final outcomes. Upon successful completion of this course, students will possess an introductory understanding of technical design that employs 2D and 3D methods.

Open to: All university undergraduates, except AAS and BFA majors in Fashion Design for whom permission is required.
