Pattern Drafting & Contemporary Trends Workshop

Make a skirt pattern and learn about fashion trends

Did you know that most skirt designs start from a basic shape that is adapted to reflect the designer or product developer’s ideas? In this workshop, which allows students to experience a sample class taught by an instructor from FIDM, you will:

  • Learn how to draft a basic skirt pattern.
  • Adapt the basic skirt to your design sensibility.
  • Participate in a discussion on upcoming trends and their impact on contemporary fashion.
  • Hear how a product developer conceptualizes ideas for all the merchandise in stores like the Gap and Forever 21.

At the end of this hands-on workshop, you will have created a custom-fitted pattern to make your favorite skirt over and over again.

If you cannot attend the workshop but would like more information on FIDM, please fill out our Info Request form.
