The course will appeal to those senior high school students interested in clothing pattern development and those interested in careers in fashion design. The course provides the opportunity for the fashion design student to work with half scale basic patterns used for making garments. The student learns by the flat pattern principles how to alter the basic pattern in order to achieve a new garment design. Experiences in designing a variety of necklines, sleeves, bodices, skirts, and waistlines will be provided. Although the development of the ability to make patterns is the primary purpose of the course, it will also give the student a better understanding of pattern alteration, garment fitting, and use of fabric grain. Offering suggested content ideas, learning opportunities and resources, the course description is organized according to behavioral outcomes. A bibliography and an appendix containing sample test materials complete the document. (MW)
