Basic wardrobe: sewing course for beginners


About the Course

This course is a perfect introduction to Fashion design. You will learn how to make simple patterns based on your own personal measurements, which means that EVERY BODY will make garments for their size!

What is basic wardrobe? In this online sewing course you will learn how to design and sew your own t-shirts, dresses, jumpers, hoodies, robes and trousers (anything you see in the pictures here).

The aim of the course is to give you an understanding of how patterns are made, how they can be adjusted and played around. I will show you how to make garments step by step, but it is on you to get creative and experiment!

READYMADE PATTERNS ARE NOT INCLUDED: the goal of the course is to teach you the basic principles of making your own patterns! Once you learn this, you'll realise that you don't need ready made patterns.

If you have any questions or concerns, please send me a message first. There are no refunds after you have taken the course.
