Pattern Drafting & Outfit Composition in Marvelous Designer

Pattern Drafting & Outfit Composition in Marvelous Designer

Level: Beginner-Intermediate

Duration: 3.5 hours

This course is focused on teaching you Marvelous Designer from the very beginning, developing the important skill of creating sewing patterns from scratch for any character. No previous experience required.

The goal is to create a wardrobe made up of basic clothes that you can modify and re-use to make full layered outfits at the same time you become familiar with the tools and get a lot of tips and tricks in the way.
In each video, we start making a garment and show you how to modify it to make variations. And show you multiple ways you can do things so you can find your own workflow.

The videos are fully edited, speeding up on repetitive parts to optimize the length but still showing the whole process with voiceover in English. There’s no BGM so feel free to play music on the side!
