anyone familiar with flat pattern class?
I have taken several fashion classes at the local community college and have been greatly disappointed. The instructor starts out great but then falls flat, we have never accomplished all the goals promised of any of the classes and I have learned very little. Now she is promising that this Flat Pattern Class will teach how to make patterns fit... I guess. I have asked her several times what the class is about and she keeps saying the same thing, but since I don't know what flat pattern is I don't know what kind of questions to ask. I have told her how frustrated I get because I can't find anyone to help me with fitting and books teach only so much, you really need a person to help. I am currently unemployed and $195.00 is a lot of money, especially if this class will be as poor as the others. Can someone explain to me what I should expect from this class? I don't understand how making a cardboard figure one quarter real size will help me to get purchased patterns to fit without making a bunch of muslins first. I have no interest in making my own designs, I only want to get purchased patterns to fit without wasting time and a ton of money. I need to know by this Tuesday so if anyone can shed light on this topic I would be very grateful!! Thanks!
