4-day Custom Dress Form & Moulage Workshop with Kenneth D. King
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.
