The Bridalwear Course is for fashion designers who want to start their own bridalwear line or learn how to sew wedding gowns.  Everyone knows the Bridalwear Industry is really HUGE!  And it’s no surprise that fashion designers who make wedding gowns are a BIG part of every wedding!  After all, the most important person at a wedding apart from the Couple is the bride’s designer!  EVERYONE wants to see the dress!  It is TRULY every bride’s dream to be PERFECT!  And the wedding gown is the best kept secret before the BIG DAY!


What better way to put a smile on a bride’s face on her amazing day than her designer coming through for her in just 7 days???!!!  Wow!  That is a feat I must confess!  I suspect she must have received a dress that she was not pleased with because the chances of a bride leaving her dress till the very last minute is very slim!  But whatever the reason was, #martwaynestudent @cute_hazel delivered! The bride was sooooo pleased she even sent her a video!


It’s no secret that I made my wedding gown!  😀  To be honest I tried as hard as I could not to do it myself but when the gown I ordered made me look short and fat (and you know how vain we ladies can be – and it is one of the most important days of one’s life), I decided to churn out a dress.  MUCH to my sister’s pleasure!  And to be honest, I’m glad I did.  

And I’m not the only one who made my own dress!  Several fashion designers have dreamt of making their own dresses on their BIG day!  We also have #martwaynestudents who have made their own dresses as well!  @liberteclothiers made her dress as well and was mighty pleased with it!


We also have @dazzlemegorgeously who attended the Corsetry Course and put this on the runway weeks later!  Yes we are using their Instagram handles on purpose so you can contact them if you have doubts.



Now if she was able to churn this out with just the Corsetry module, then imagine what you can achieve if you attend the complete Bridalwear Course!

BUT what we will teach goes wayyyyy beyond my simple dress.  In fact, if I had attended this Course before my wedding, I would have done something else.  This Course is PACKED and we are talking real COUTURE here.  And the beauty behind the Course is it teaches so many principles which you can even apply both for wedding gowns, bridesmaids dresses and red carpet dresses.

The beauty behind the Course is it teaches so many principles which you can even apply both for wedding gowns, bridesmaids dresses and red carpet dresses.

What Will You Learn:

  • First you will learn about the various bridal silhouettes, necklines and which silhouettes work with which body shapes. It is important to have proper knowledge about these so you can advise your customers appropriately.
  • Then we will teach how to create the patterns for each of the silhouettes mentioned – as well as other variations – especially to the skirt portion of the dresses.
  • Then we will teach Corsetry!  I LOVE corsets but we will also teach how to also achieve a wedding gown without corsets so you can have various options to offer your customers based on their budgets.
  • We will also teach the different closures we can have in wedding gowns and bridal wear.  Closures are very important to the overall look of the outfit.
  • No wedding gown is complete without veils.  We will teach how to create the different veils and lengths.  AND also teach how to create the undergarments such as hooped skirts and petticoats to give that volume you see in wedding gowns
  • Tambour Beading is a great one we are adding to this Course.  I have tried to learn it and it is very interesting.  Some serious handwork which takes time and patience and attention to detail and sure to give your garments a fantastic look that reeks expensive and “well worth the price”.
  • In addition to the basic pattern making you will learn, we also have a specialised module: Advanced Pattern Making Techniques.  Now this Module is another ISH module because this one is guaranteed to expand your minds and challenge you in terms of creativity. Add this to the Fabric Manipulation Modules and your output is sure to look amazing!
  • Of course you know for us at Martwayne, we are always about the business as well.  No point having a skill if you cannot make money from it so we are including some fashion business modules as well such as how to do your costing and pricing and also creative ways of hacking the Industry and how to find your customers.  Of course we all know there is a BIG market for Bridalwear but it is important to be able to plug into it!
  • Like someone said to me, making a wedding gown is NOT about sewing a white dress!  It is WAYYYYYYY more than that and the instructors and I are really pleased to bring all our knowledge together to create an amazing course that you will reap the benefits over and over and over again!
