I’ve been taking a pattern making course and I absolutely LOVE it :) I’ve been in love with it ever since I started and I feel like I’m ready to start a REALLY small line of silk and chiffon separates.
My only concern is pattern grading. I wasn’t taught ANY grading in my pattern making course and it is an essential part of starting a clothing line. I have read the threads article on grading and have come across a few tutorials online, but they all show the exact same thing the threads article shows: the slash and spread technique on the basic slopers.
what about more complex designs? like collars, circle skirts, capes, and bell sleeves? How would I learn to grade designs like these? And what about the grading technique of using a special ruler?
does anyone here have grading experience and would like to share their tips?
