Students will learn advanced problem solving skills through the creation of the basic set of fashion patterns and the integration of design details. Students may incur additional costs for project related supplies. This course requires field trips as possible. They are scheduled within class time and usually do not require additional cost to student. An example of previous field trips is a research trip to the Gregg. Please note College of Design or Minor of Art + Design (12DMN) Students ONLY due to to limited size of labs and class demand.

This course has been offered as ADN311 during Spring 2015, Fall 2013 and Spring 2012 semesters with an average enrollment of 17.  It is important in our Fibers program as it teaches students how to develop the flat patterns to create 3-dimensional structures (both garments and sculptural). 


Please note: The  restriction of "College of Design or Minor of Art + Design (12DMN) Students ONLY "is due in part to limited size of lab and high demand for course within that population.

This course would require no new resources as it would fit into current course rotations of current faculty as any of our Fibers instructors would be capable of teaching this course.

Please note: The restriction of "75% of seats are reserved for College of Design or Minor of Art + Design (12DMN) Students ONLY "is due in part to limited size of lab and high demand for course within that population.

Course Objectives:



  • Utilize critical thinking skills and mathematical principles to adjust pattern measurements and shaping according to fit testing results and garment/product needs

  • Understand fabric principles such as grainline and stretch to create a mathematical model to create a garment or product

  • Understand the behavior of fabrics and how and when to best utilize different fabrics to create the desired fit and aesthetic of the garment or product

  • Utilize a logical approach to draping the 3 dimentional fabric prototype and synthesize that knowledge into a 2 dimensional flat pattern


Student Learning Outcomes

After this course, students will be able to do the following:



  • Accurately drape the basic fashion bodices and skirts

  • Transfer a draped muslin pattern to paper

  • Evaluate the fit of a muslin on the form

  • Drape design details including pleats and gathers.

  • Learn to apply fundamental draping technique to traditional and non-traditional projects


After this course, students will be able to do the following:



  • Take proper measurements of the dressform and human model to create and evaluate their patterns

  • Create the basic set of patterns (bodice, skirt, and sleeve)

  • Draft a sleeve pattern in the size matching their dressform

  • Evaluate when, where and how much ease to add or subtract to create the fit they desire on their final piece

  • Add design details to their products including by not limited to:  pleats, gathers, twists, piecing

  • True a pattern properly so that each seam and dart can be properly constructed

Please note: we need a consultation from College of Physical and Mathematical Sciences due to the request for approval for GEP Mathematics requirement.
Please note in course description on syllabus: Students who elect to take this course a second time are expected to build upon their experience and/or to approach these concepts from a different perspective.

Please note that this course was part of a list of courses that Provost Arden, Dean Malecha and Dean Hinks have recommended for approval. Please see attached memo for details.
Please also note that this course action was originally submitted April 2014. Original course action has been attached. There are a couple of updates that the new course actions reflects due to process or requirement changes.

4/21/16 - LM - Post consultation with the College of Sciences, this course is moving forward without the MS GEP. It may come back under consideration pending further discussion with Math.
