PATTERN MAKING WITH EASE COURSE FOR FASHION DESIGNERS
How to use Flat Pattern Making Techniques to draft fashion patterns that Fit.
Struggling to make Outfits that
Hi, My Name is Serah Kassim and I am here to help you.
Fashion for me started pretty early, I had always been around Tailors growing up. From my mum to my grandma there was always one person.
It was fascinating watching them make a dress from start to finish, the joy was indescribable, I liked that my mum and grandma could make a dress out of just basic fabric, it was mind-blowing.
Then it started, problem upon problems, issues upon issues when it came to fittings, precision, accuracy, and FIT!
It just wasn’t always sitting right, and I didn’t know why, till I discovered patternmaking in 2016, I was sold!!!
In 2016, I started learning how to make Patterns.
As soon as I was done taking lessons in class, I would come back to watch YouTube lessons on PatternMaking.
I would make sure to try practicing all I was learning.
I did all of this till I had to go for NYSC (National Youth Service Corps for Non-Nigerian Citizen, where you get posted to a particular region to serve your country for a year.)
It was during my NYSC that everything dawned on me.
I saw how badly I had to learn the skill of Pattern making.
Interacting with people from different places, I saw the need to. The complaints were the same everywhere I met fashion designers, everyone had a problem with getting the right fit.
Everyone kept complaining about how poor their fit was.
I started asking questions about patternmaking, if they had heard about it, while some haven't heard, the majority complained about how difficult the process was.
It was at that moment I realized, it wasn't that people didn't want to add the skill of patternmaking, it was the process, it was how it was being taught, it was the way it was being explained.
With all this information, I knew I had to do something about bridging that gap.
I enjoyed making patterns, how could I simplify the processes too.
I started learning not only how to make patterns but ways to simplify learning for others. I started documenting,
I started taking notes, I started learning to make the process simple.
Till I found a signature patternmaking framework that let me draft my patterns with Ease. I started testing this process with Video Classes on my Instagram with followers of about 30,000, the comments, feedback, and reviews have been fantastic.
I went ahead and launched the Patternmaking with ease course in 2020 and we have recorded a total of about 60 students.
I went from Basic fit to one that is being referred to as "Tailored to Fit"
This could be you too, but you would need me to guide you.

Growing up in a home filled with fashion designers has always been one of the highlights of my childhood.
It was fascinating watching the people around me make a dress from start to finish, the joy was indescribable except that as beautiful as the craft was there were just too many problems tied to fittings, precision, and accuracy. It just didn't look right to me.
I started watching fashion channels on Television, went for Lagos Fashion and design weekend (LFDW) and it started making sense as to what the problem was. I was a number and precision person, so you can imagine my excitement when I heard there was something called "Patternmaking"
Immediately I enrolled in Bismol Fashion academy to take a course on Patternmaking.
I started taking the course, I knew this was it, everything seemed right except when I started interacting with people I discovered that the reason why designers didn't add the skill was that they started but along the line, it seemed difficult and then they abandoned it.
At that moment I realized, it wasn't that people didn't want to add the skill of patternmaking, it was the process, it was how it was being taught, it was the way it was being explained.
With all this information, I knew I had to do something about bridging and leveling that gap.
I enjoyed making patterns, how could I simplify the process so people can too?
I got to work, I started learning not only how to make patterns but ways to explain them better...I started documenting, I started taking notes.
Till I found a signature framework, that helped me in taking accurate measurements, helped me understand PatternMaking concepts better, helped me create Patternmaking with Ease Course.
