Hi Kenneth,
What supplies will be needed for this class?

Can any garment be replicated (dress, pants) etc?

Tx

Materials list:

A garment you want to copy—start with a plaid or striped garment, so you can really see the grain lines well.

1-1˝ yard silk organza, off-white, grey, or pastel in color. I’m very specific about fabric, fiber, and color here for a number of reasons. Polyester won’t work as well, and chiffon is too unstable. So, silk organza!

Colored pencils—the Berol Prysmacolor artists pencils work best, as the marks stick to the organza better

Ruler, pins, paper. Drafting square, and other tools to draft the pattern pieces

Kenneth, I am planning to copy a bias skirt. Will the techniques be the same for that?

They will--the entire process is dependent on the lengthwise and crosswise grainlines. On a bias skirt, the challenge is to make sure these grain lines are accurately marked, and all will be well.

I don't have anything plaid or striped; can I still be successful copying my pants pattern?

You can--it may be a little more difficult to find grain lines, but you can do it. If you are working on a patterned fabric you can use that as well to determine the grain, but solid colors--also possible.

No--if you have an ironing board, or a table, and pressing ham, you'll be fine.
