If your ultimate aim is to be skilled enough to make your own clothes, or maybe to eventually run your own business as a designer/ dress maker, then this is where to get started.
Registering for this course will put you on the path to fulfilling your dream in dress making and fashion design.
This Dressmaking for Beginners Course is structured to teach you all you need for garment construction and start the journey to creating your dream wardrobe.
Sewing your own garments is really not as difficult as you may have been made to believe. This course will take you through the very basic elements of fabric selection, getting to know your sewing machine and how to begin expanding and pimping your wardrobe by sewing your own clothing, or clothing for your family/business.
Your first project will be to stitch together a couple of simple projects like pillowcases, head scarves, kitchen clothing items, tote bag etc. Here you'll learn most of the basic elements of how to run stitches and put pieces together. After that you will learn how to sew a simple jacket, tops and different neck line styles. Then you will complete your wardrobe by learning how to add fullness with pleats and gathers, the ins and outs of simple skirts construction that includes darts, overlap, buttons, and buttonholes, ending with the creation of dresses.
Once you finish this course, you will be able to custom make outfits to your body, choose the correct fabrics, and stitch together garments that you like and that fit you well.
So what are you waiting for? Let's help you get started now,
because once you begin, you won't be able to stop. Have you seen a ready-to-wear
garment you like, but doesn't look good on you or will put a hole in your
pocket if you went for it? Not to worry, just create your own design that fits
you. We'll teach you how!
