Our Fashion draping basics online course gives learners a unique opportunity to obtain a solid background in draping which is utmost necessity to proceed further with developing draping skills.

Symbolically speaking, without proper footing one cannot jump without legs one cannot walk.

The same can be said about basic draping as its your foundation without which you cannot build up a sustained progress in maturing your draping ability. Therefore its very important to choose carefully how and where you will start your journey. You should identify and pick up only courses created by professionals - the masters of draping  


During the course, the learners produce few basic blocks (sloper patterns) in order to understand the key points of draping techniques and by doing so they will be able to start their own “pattern library”. 

The set of basic blocks consists of basic bodice, basic skirt, basic shift dress(torso), princess bodice.  In addition to studying very detailed draping processes, students learn about body measurements, ease, fabric structure, seam allowance, how to make paper patterns, etc, etc. - all those basic and essential knowledge of pattern-making.
