I got a sneak peek at Lauren Dahl’s new Digital Pattern Drafting Course using Adobe Illustrator! I thought I knew a lot about Illustrator and how to use it for fashion design, but I learned so many new things and how to utilize new tools in Illustrator. It was a huge help to me when I was developing our newest Swimsuit Sloper for BurdaStyle.com

I loved watching her videos, she really knows her way around Illustrator and teaches in a manor that is easy to understand. I am excited about doing more digital pattern making, and the best part was that she gives templates for illustrator to place your pieces on for home printing!

I had never worked with to-scale pattern pieces in Illustrator before, and now I feel like I can pretty much make anything. From the girl who thought she knew it all, this course is awesome.
