Through demonstration and lecture, this course will teach students to grade clothing patterns into complete size ranges. Also to be discussed: standard grade rules for a number of different clothing markets; selecting the appropriate grade rules for a specific garment or line; marker making and cutting; and proportion. Students will develop graded specification sheets for mass production. Students will create a “specification packet” and graded nest of patterns for one of their own designs.
