4-day Custom Dress Form
(and moulage) Workshop
with Kenneth D. King:
We have partnered with the Sewing and Design School and Kenneth D. King is coming to the San Francisco Bay Area!
Do you have fitting problems? Resolve them by creating a custom moulage and dress form, complete with arms.
Learn how to draft a custom bodice sloper and sleeve pattern using your own measurements, as well as a custom dress form (your very own body double) in this 4-day pattern making workshop with Fashion Designer and Couturier Kenneth D. King.
The moulage is the foundation of the pattern drafting system taught by the Ecole Guerre-Lavigne in Paris. This is a system of measuring the figure, calculating, and drafting a pattern that will fit the torso like a second skin, incorporating any of the infinite variations of shape the human figure can take.
This is not just a small group workshop, it is an event! We truly go all out - the space is beautiful and inviting, the setting small and intimate. The registration fee includes a yummy lunch and refreshments, too.
Level: This small group workshop is perfect for the confident beginner (male and female), ages 16 and up.
Instructor: Kenneth is professor at F.I.T. (Fashion Institute of Technology) in New York and the Sewing and Design School. Kenneth won the Association of Sewing and Design Professional's 2013 Lifetime Achievement Award.
