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, 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, 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!

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!
This is a crash course but yes you can. 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.
