What Our Students are Saying

Looking to improve her sewing skills, Patience registered for Martwayne's Advanced Course in Fashion Design.  This is her story:

"I learnt before but my work wasn't perfect. There was something missing. I wasn't proud of my finished work so I figured I had to learn more.

I discussed my situation with a friend who learnt where I did and she said she had also felt the same way and had come to Martwayne. When I saw her work, I didn't need much persuasion.'

This can be your story!

About the

Advanced Dressmaking Course

The Advanced Dressmaking Course is for dressmakers who want to improve their knowledge of the clothing production process, and enhance their dressmaking skills. Most of the students who register for this Course can already sew but perhaps learnt it informally or learnt the freehand method of making clothes.

In the Course we will focus on 2 main aspects:

-  Sewing with a particular focus on finishing techniques; and

-  Patternmaking.

We guarantee that right from the very beginning of the Course, you will understand how to minimize errors in your process, which will inevitably boost your confidence and your revenues as well.

Course Overview

The Sewing Module

Sewing is not just attaching pieces of fabric together.  It is about giving life to fabric.  Our methods teach how to mould fabric from its 2-dimensional form into a 3-dimensional form to fit a body using principles that will work across different clothes you are making.

Simply put, once you apply these sewing principles, they can be applied to any garment.  Once you know how to do it, that's it!  It sticks! 

Learning outcomes include how to properly construct various garments such as skirts, dresses, office shirts, blouses, collars, cuffs, necklines, strapless dresses, trousers, jumpsuits, etc.  From fabric layout and cutting, to the proper tools you need in garment construction and how to conduct a fitting.

The Patternmaking Module

We teach pattern drafting as against the free hand method.  Working with patterns have various benefits such as minimizing errors, saving fabric and proper planning.  Once you understand the principle behind pattern drafting, it can also be applied to any outfit.  

We will also teach you how to read and decode a pattern book by following simple instructions so that you learn how to work on your own at home.

Learning outcomes include how to create the basic blocks - skirts, bodices, dresses, sleeves, etc and how to convert them to working and final patterns.  You will also learn how to work with darts, learn various dart manipulation techniques, contouring, style lines, neck lines and so many other principles that will turn you into a pro!
