This subject introduces students to the principles of pattern making and garment construction, as a means to begin interpreting fashion design ideas into realisable garment outcomes. Students learn how to translate fashion drawings into flat pattern form, and to translate flat pattern pieces into three-dimensional form. In this subject students investigate material qualities essential to begin creating accurate and professional fashion garments, and learn industry techniques used for creating and interpreting production garment patterns. Students are introduced to garment block patterns, and investigate essential garment forms, and details applicable to these forms. Students undertake accreditation and OH&S training relevant to working in the specialised industrial sewing workshop.
