Pattern Grading

Pattern Grading & Marking

Add sizes to your basic pattern. Set up your own grade rules.

Basic grading

Use slopers to learn the basic principles of changing pattern sizes. Learn the inside secrets of increasing and decreasing sizes and government standards for grade rules. Apply these principles to pants, skirts, sleeves and bodices.

Advanced grading and marking

Bring in your patterns and learn how to grade them to different sizes. Create your own grade rules for cardinal points. Apply to knits and wovens. Learn how to set up a marker — a layout of all you pattern pieces ready for cutting — for best use of fabric.
