Today I’m happy to announce that my newest e-course: Pattern Grading – A Digital Course, is now open for enrollment. This course in how to grade patterns is one that I know many people have been asking for since I launched my Creating PDF Patterns course back in March.
Since then, I have worked hard to make the process of pattern grading as concise and easy to understand as possible. As a concept, I think pattern grading is pretty easy – you’re just adding or subtracting to/from the pattern to change one size into another. But in practice, where and how much to add/subtract and how exactly to redraw your new pattern can get complicated. That is what my course aims to simplify for you.
So, I’ve created a combination of video demonstrations and printable notes/charts that simplify and summarize what I’ve learned through years of trial and error, applied practice, and access to grading textbooks that sell for hundreds of dollars used since they are in demand and out of print (I’ve lucked out with the research libraries available to me). I’ve also added my own well-honed classroom teaching practice and my knowledge of Illustrator to bring grading on paper into the digital world of drafting. So whether you plan to grade on paper or in the computer, you’ll find this course useful.
