As seen on Project Runway, learn how to work with fabric on a dress form to turn your fashion ideas into real garments. Arrange your fabric into folds, twists and style lines to create dresses, tops, skirts, coats and daring necklines. We provide the dress forms. But in the first session, you will find out where to buy a good quality, inexpensive dress form, alter it to your size and how to put on style lines — so you can start designing your ideas!
