Board/Authority Authorized Courses: Requirements and Procedures
Rationale: The Career Program in Fashion Design is a comprehensive one which includes
not only the background knowledge of textiles theory and the skills of garment
construction which are currently taught in the existing clothing and textiles courses, but
adds to these, portfolios development, fashion illustration, storyboards, computer
assisted fashion drafting and flat pattern drafting. The goal of FD 11 and FD 12 is to
prepare students who wish to further their studies at a post-secondary institute such as
IIFD, Kwantlen University College or to work in the fashion industry.
Organizational Structure: (units, topics, modules)
Unit 1 fabrics/drafting tools
Unit 2 sketches/croquis,
storyboards, pattern
adaptation and drafting
Unit 3 design fabric/color/line/
Unit 4 construction
Unit 5

Total hours
100 hrs
Unit/Topic/Module Descriptions:
Unit 1: Tools of the Trade
Time 1 hr.
Students will become familiar and demonstrate the safe use of the appropriate materials and
equipment needed to produce their textiles projects. Of particular interest will be drafting
tools needed for flat pattern construction and computed generated pattern software.
Equipment It is expected students will
: identify and practice the use of fashion drafting equipment, pressing equipment,
threads, needles and time saving tools.
: operate a simple software program used to generate custom patterns
: operate sewing machine, serger, and embroidery machine.
: apply safety and appropriate care for equipment in the sewing lab.
: explain and use appropriate textile terminology
Fabric It is expected students will be able to
: add surface design to enhance their fabrics
: identify fabrics/linings/interfacings/notions appropriate to their designs and
sewing needs
: analyze fiber content – burn lab
: care for completed garment (washing and stain removal)
Unit 2: Pre Production
Time: 3hrs
Students will become confident in using their designs to alter basic patterns or draft their
own patterns.
Proper sizing and seeking the most efficient layout will also be covered.
Fashion Illustration It is expected students will:
: demonstrate a basic approach to drawing, through free draw, storyboards and croqui
: start a sketch book of illustrations.
: be able to illustrate their design in a final presentation board.
Inspiration File It is expected students will :
: start building a resource file for design inspiration.
Design Elements and Principles: It is expected students will:
: have an understanding of all the design elements and principles and how to apply to
their drawings
: use elements and principles in a wardrobe assignment
Unit 3: Design own Fabric
Time 10hrs
Students will design own fabric. Then put the fabric to use with an appropriate project of
their choice.
Fabric Design It is expected students will be able to:
: use various surface designs, or decorative stitches to create their own fabric.
: to use their designed fabric in an appropriate project.
Unit 4: Production
Time 60 hrs
Students will create 4 projects in this course. At least one garment must be of their own
design using the fabric they created. The other three garments will be chosen from the Textiles 11
course outline. These project choices include:
1. a knit garment
2. a simple skirt, pants or shorts, with facing, interfacing fly or
invisible zipper
3. shirt or jacket with collar and set in sleeves and buttoned
4. lined garment
5. recycled garment or garment made of recycled materials
They will put their knowledge of equipment and tools to use, as well as learning how to read
a guide sheet and developing their own time saving techniques.
Construction Techniques It is expected students will:
: make an effort to assemble or read and interpret a guide sheet on their own before
seeking help
: make appropriate solutions to construction problems
: cover all the sewing techniques as outlined in the Textiles 11 IRP.
: work throughout class consistently and use class time effectively
Unit 5: Post Production
Time 4hrs
Students will be given the opportunity to discuss ways of assessing their textile products
Discussion will include quality, design, cost and care of item. Post production will also
include looking at fashion careers, designers and a fashion show.
Reflection It is expected students will:
: be able to compare the items they produce in relation to equivalent commercial patterns
in terms of cost, time, quality, appearance, and personal satisfaction
: be able to evaluate the quality of construction and fill out a self evaluation form which
includes such questions as, “I want you to notice- I was not successful with- because,
Next time I would and An important change in my work has been.”
: have an opportunity to model their garments in an applied skills open house fashion
:explore different fashion related careers
:study local, national and international fashion designers.
Instructional Component: Direct instruction
Indirect instruction
Interactive instruction
Independent problem solving
Videotaped techniques
Analysis of own work
Assessment Component:
45% of the grade will be based on the process of production. This mark is made up of a daily
participation mark out of 10 which is a result of teacher observation. 45% of the grade is a project
evaluation where quality of construction is considered, pattern reading ability, level of difficulty of
the project and a student evaluation of the project. 10% of the final grade is based on theory
