In the first part of the workshop, Laura will explain the theory for designing garments.

In the second part, the theory will be put into practice on the basis of the sample taken by the participants and by means of various exercises. Two basic constructions will be used: drop shoulder and modified drop. Armhole and neckline will also be discussed, as well as how to start the sleeves in circular from the piece.
