Pattern Designing is an extensive subject which covers principles of constructions and techniques in a wider sense rather than style detail in narrow sense. It opens scope for infinite variety of styles both for regular designs and fantasy patterns. Pattern construction can be divided in two parts namely measuring correctly & knowledge of technique with which they are applied. Learning pattern making by trial and error is like learning to play music by ear.
This is a method where in body or dress form measurements are taken for developing a pattern. Following a logical stepwise procedure, the measurements are then converted into a pattern. In other words this system depends on accurate measurements to complete the paper pattern. There are limitless designs, which can be achieved for workablegarments. Flat pattern making should be done in conjunction with a dress form so that as the design evolves, proportion and balance in the garment can be checked side by side. It is important to transfer the pattern on to a muslin toile (pronounced as ‘twall’) to test the fit, on a dress form or a human figure. Flat pattern cutting is now widely used because of its accuracy of sizing and the speed with which complicated designs are made
Prior planning and clarity is necessary for the performance of the exercises. Read handouts, appropriate lab manuals and textbooks before performing the practical. Follow all precautions and regulations while working in the lab. Listen carefully to any introductory remarks and experimental procedure given by your teacher. Make sure that your working space is clean and organized, and all the required stocks and materials are kept ready. Maintain the discipline in your working area.
Results should be recorded in the recommended record/file neatly and legibly with great care. The record of exercises may be done in the following headings:
A MANUAL FOR PRACTICAL WORK IN FASHION STUDIES CLASS XI
1. Introduction/Aim State precisely the purpose and objectives of the practical in two or three sentences.
2. Materials and methods The requirements like equipment, materials, etc. should be given here. Besides, methods should also be described along with principles of the techniques used.
3. Sample / Results The paper pattern corrected after test fitting should be labeled and neatly folded and placed in a transparent envelope and attached here.
Things to be included on a pattern are:-
l Grain line
l Centre Front or Centre Back
l Style number or code number of the pattern set may be evolved e.g. AB 01 here AB identify type of the garment and 01 identify the piece number of complete set. If there are 5 pattern pieces in a garment, the pieces will be numbered as AB 01, AB 02, AB 03, AB 04 and AB 05.
l Pattern piece e.g. skirt front, skirt back, side front etc.
l Size as 32, 34, 36, or S, M, L etc.

l Directional Fabrics - For fabrics which have designs in one direction such as floral print, stripes, plaid, velvet, fur etc. A symbol “cut one way” or (?) is indicated on the pattern.
l Date - Indicated as a reference point.
l Seam Allowances.
The amount of seam allowance required for each seam line may vary depending on the
location and end purpose. Generally these are the measurements followed -
