Fashion Making for 15 - 17 Year Olds
On this practical course, you’ll learn the three most important skills in making womenswear: how to cut a pattern, how to use a sewing machine and how to make adjustments to a pattern.
It’s ideal if you are new to making clothes and want to learn either for personal projects or to add work to a portfolio.
On this course, you will learn how to:
read a pattern and understand the terminology
take measurements correctly
mark fabric, pin and cut with accuracy
thread a sewing machine and over-locker, and use the correct stitches
choose the right fabric for a garment (a trip to a fabric store will be included)
complete a dress fitting
make pattern-adjustments, such as adding and adjusting darts and the different types of seams and finishes.
Having hand-sewing or machine-sewing experience before the course is useful, but not essential.
What will you gain?
By the end of the course, you will have marked, cut and assembled a dress in your chosen fabric.
If you are feeling particularly brave, you may have made a start on a second project.
You will also have technical notes to help you continue making fashion in the future, and photographs of your work in progress for your portfolio.
You'll have real hands-on experience of what it's like to be a fashion student at university.
