Pattern Making

Course Objectives

The goal of this course is to train students (including total beginners) to become professional pattern makers, whose job is to transform the design sketch of the stylist into a pattern that would reflect the original concept, in proportions and style. Students will learn about human anatomy and quality control, supervising the prototype production to ensure a successful final product.

What Does the Pattern Maker Do?

The pattern maker plays an essential role within the fashion industry as the middleman linking together different workers. Being the one who transforms the design sketch into a pattern, they need to demonstrate creativity, technical expertise, organisation and interpretational skills. The main responsibility of the pattern maker involves supervising the fitting within the prototype production, ensuring the quality of its industrial reproduction. The pattern maker is also the one providing pattern grading, the process of creating different sizes of the same model.

Career Opportunities

The professional pattern maker has the opportunity to have a tailor–based production or to become part of a factory line production. Fashion companies tend to easily integrate the role of the pattern maker within the ones of the head designer, the samples personnel and the product manager.
