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!
