ATLANTA - Moulage & Sleeve Drafting Workshop with Kenneth D. King



Kenneth D. King will take you step by step through the process of making a body double pattern from your own measurements.  With this, you will draft a bodice sloper, jacket sloper and be given instructions to grade to an overcoat sloper.  With these Masters you will be able to design your own patterns and alter commercial patterns.  Follow it up with Ryliss Bod for a day of doing just that.



Wear a leotard or other tight fitting garment, with the desired foundation garments, to the first class.  This facilitates accurate measuring.

The class notes will be emailed to you to print out for the class.  The notes are 31 pages or so long.

A Flash Drive of Kenneth's Moulage book is available on the Shop Online page.  This may also be sent as a digital version via email.  His books go into great depth than the class notes.  I took my Flash drive book to a local print shop and had it printed and spiral bound.
