Have you dreamed of creating your own PDF sewing patterns? How about starting your own business selling patterns from the comfort of your home?
For many years, the process of creating technically accurate and beautiful PDF sewing patterns was a best-kept secret of only a few well-known designers. But thanks to Pattern Workshop, you can now learn the tools to start your own PDF sewing pattern design business (or just design them for yourself and your family!).
The course starts with an introduction to Adobe Illustrator and individual video tutorials on all the essential tools you’ll need to get started. Then, more advanced videos will show you exactly how to use your skills to draft, modify, grade and tile your patterns. Next, you’ll learn to digitally draw gorgeous technical illustrations for your pattern cover and instructions, and you’ll put it all together in InDesign to create an attractive, user-friendly layout.
Finally, you’ll learn to navigate the testing process, market your patterns, set up shop and create an affiliate program. You’ll even get lots of printable checklists, cheat sheets and templates to give you a jump-start on launching your pdf sewing pattern business.
Think you might want to have your patterns printed on paper in the future? The course includes a bonus lesson on how to make that happen, too!
