Learn to use a grading ruler to change up or change down an existing pattern size. Knowing how to grade a pattern allows you to achieve correct dimension and shape for all parts of the body, regardless of what size your pattern is. You can adapt a single pattern for multiple sizes (think bridal party), use patterns in your own collection for another person regardless of size and perfect every one of the patterns you use for yourself, of course. These grading techniques follow the same process used in the garment industry as a standard grade for all pattern sizes, and the class is a perfect way to improve your own understanding and use of both single and multi-size patterns. All you bring is a basic t-shirt pattern to grade. Rulers and other necessary notions are included in your materials fee.
