Drafting Leggings Pattern
Learn how to draft your very own pattern for a custom pair of leggings, using your measurements, taken from your body, as the foundation. You'll be the designer and decide on ankle, calf or knee length, high or low waist... whatever your heart desires. Cal will show you how to take your measurements and explain the concept of "negative ease." Then you will transfer those measurements to paper with a little patternmaking mojo. At the end of this workshop, you'll be ready for Cal's workshop on sewing leggings from your freshly-drafted, custom pattern.
