Our bodies come in all shapes and sizes so it is not surprising that it is difficult to find ready to wear garments that fit well. Commercial sewing patterns are based on standard measurement sets and often require many alterations to achieve a good fit.

CIAM Patternmaking teaches you how to draft sewing patterns from your own measurements to achieve a perfect fit every time. You can also use the method to draft patterns for others.

You will learn how to assemble the garments you have drafted using techniques based on Class A industry standards for sewing.

Our teachers are committed to helping you achieve high quality, well fitting garments.
