Then you absolutely need this Course!
I went into fashion because I was tired of my tailor wrecking my clothes. I decided to learn it, not necessarily because I wanted to run a business but just so I could come back to teach her to sew fab garments for me!
So if you are at the stage I was back then (and I know many of you are) and would love to learn how to sew, not necessarily to run a full-blown business but so you can churn out clothes for yourself, close family members and friends, then this course is PERFECT for you.
And you don't even need to quit your job! We have a weekday and a weekend option as well for busy professionals.
Turn your passion into a sellable skill and earn a 2nd income. We guarantee it!
Yes you definitely can! Not one of our students whose testimonials I have posted above could sew when they joined the Course. But check out what they have been able to do while at Martwayne. If they can do it, so can you! All you need is the passion and the determination to succeed. You leave the rest to us!
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 from scratch 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 sew 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!
Just look at the work up there and be encouraged! Remember, they all started from scratch!

I am a South African trained Fashion Designer well versed in various areas of Fashion Industry and its relationship with the business community. I know first-hand what it feels like to take the plunge and switch from a very comfortable career path in Accounting with one of the Big Four Accounting Firms - KPMG Professional Services - to a completely unrelated field - Fashion!
Why am I so confident you will get the best from Martwayne? Simple! I learnt everything from scratch myself. And the way I transitioned easily from Accounting to Fashion Design is the exact way we teach! You've seen our testimonials so you know we are GREAT at what we do! It's time for you to take that plunge too!

That's what you think. If you can dress yourself up every morning, then you are more creative than you give yourself credit for. If you can imagine the style, then you can create it! You just have to know how!
Of course! You can immediately start sewing for people and charging for the Service. BUT I must warn you, running a Fashion Business is a completely different ball game. You need to also learn the Business Sides of Fashion. Click on this link to know more.
This Course is about learning the Skill so being able to draw is not that important at this stage. HOWEVER, when you decide to turn into a sellable skill and charge people for it, you should be able to sketch what you plan to make for them. You can also register for our Creative & Fashion Illustration Course. Click here for details.
Yes we do! We have the Beginners Course in Fashion Design, an all-encompassing Course which teaches the Creative, the Sewing & the Business Sides of Fashion. Click here for more details.
