Have you ever had one of those days when you thread your needle on the first try, your side seams match perfectly and you have just enough bobbin thread to sew your final seam? The University of Fashion has had one of those weeks! Take a look at the three reasons last week was as exciting as setting a sleeve without a single pucker of fabric.
First, we launched the next video in our 8-Part Knit Series – Knit Stretch Reductions: Sleeve Slopers. Learn how to make the pattern adjustments to your sleeve sloper in order to ensure a perfect fit, no matter what type of knit fabric you are using.
Second, we’ve been in the studio filming new pattern making, draping and fashion art videos. Draping lingerie, couture sewing methods – it’s all coming your way soon. We cannot wait to bring you new interviews with fashion industry professionals, and we will post just as quickly as we can edit!
And last, but certainly not least, we received the most amazing feedback from fashion design student, Alexander Diesner:
“As a beginning fashion design student, I’m very excited about the University of Fashion’s high quality, educational video tutorials. They’re a great resource for students who need to review or advance their sewing and design skills. The tutorial instructors are clear, succinct, and very knowledgeable about their field, offering excellent tutorials on tricky areas, such as pattern drafting. I found the draping videos to be enormously helpful because, in my community college, draping courses aren’t offered every semester; these videos helped me to learn the basics on my own so I’ll be better prepared once the traditional draping class is offered. Students, like me, who plan on applying to a big name fashion school, such as F.I.T or Parsons, will really appreciate the Portfolio Preparation video. My instructors have started including the University of Fashion tutorials on our online course pages so we can review skills we learn in the classroom any time we want; I no longer have to wait for class time when I’m stuck on a project! Overall, I found the University of Fashion to be a phenomenal resource, a great innovation in my field of study, and useful both inside and outside the classroom.”
