Have you ever wanted to learn how to make your own clothes? The course is aimed at beginners interested in learning a variety of sewing skills, techniques, and use of a sewing machine as well as anyone who already has some experience but wishes to perfect their technique to achieve a professional finish.
This course is the ideal starting point for those wishing to make clothes for themselves, apply for a fashion degree or to gain industry level skills to eventually work within the fashion industry.
Based in our specialist Fashion studios, fully equipped with various types of industrial sewing machinery and presses, you'll be introduced to a wide range of skills necessary to make garments with a professional finish.
Through a series of tutor-led demonstrations, discussions, and practical workshops you'll learn the processes of pattern cutting and constructing a ladies fitted top with sleeves and a skirt to match.
You'll have the chance to use our industry-standard Size Stream body scanner to receive precise measurements of yourself which you can use to produce a bespoke block for yourself.
You'll then progress to making a top from the bespoke block created and with support from the tutors you'll be able to pattern cut and manufacture your chosen design. The course will give you the skills to competently apply the techniques you have learnt to the garment of your choice and will give you the freedom to make new pieces for your wardrobe.
