Digital: Patternmaking

Spring 2019

Taught By: Shelee Lyn Berghaus

Section: A

CRN: 3226

Credits: 3

This course offers an introduction to digital patternmaking through use of the OptiTex system. It is designed to support the learning within the 2D and 3D core courses of BFA Fashion, as well as other related courses. Traditional pattern making approaches, including slash and spread, dart manipulations, use of facings, and seam allowance will be translated into the digital space. Students will explore bringing in basic garment pattern forms through digitizing, and utilizing the system tools to create and modify bodice, skirt and pant slopers. Moving back and forth between digital tools and the dress form, a variety of garment manipulation methods will be explored to create new and unique designs. The course will culminate with each student developing a new, designed garment pattern and sample, and potentially investigating the 3D and marker making features of OptiTex. A ½ scale mannequin is required.
