    I’m not suggesting designers don’t or can’t make patterns but if one wouldn’t hire a pattern maker to teach fashion design -even tho they can do it and have done it however minimally- why would one hire a designer to teach pattern making?

    Sounds like they want a jack of all trades….just being able to show up and do something that looks like design/drape and pattern-making…..but since the add is from FIT it tends to devalue their standard. Probably the add was written by some one in the help wanted department.
