Patternmaking, Tools & Tech

About the Patternmaking, Tools & Tech module

From earliest history, two things have been important to fashion making – the creation of pattern shapes that create wonderful silhouettes on the body, and the special tools and technologies that are used in making fabrics and clothing, from the first women who invented the needle to the modern factory. In these activities, we explore 2D to 3D transformation, and construction techniques.
