Studio 3 continues the development of ideas, methods and skills in fit, draping, pattern making and construction in relation to one another. Semester projects are designed to explore traditional and conventional methods used in the apparel industry for tailored garments and to encourage creative, innovative and sustainable use of these methods when designing original garments. Essential skills related to pattern making, sewing and pressing techniques in structured garments are taught. Students employ both standardized and personal measurements with flat pattern techniques when drafting the classic jacket and pant blocks.
