Now available Episode 17, Draping 101, air date November 19
This week, it’s “Draping 101″ with Althea Harper. Draping is a method of manipulating fabric around a form to pattern a garment. Some fashion designers are strictly “drapers” while others are strictly “flat patternmakers.” Most designers are a combination of both. Learn important things to consider when draping a garment for the first time. This and past episodes can purchased at shopsewitall.com.
