About the Course

On this course, you'll be introduced to professional sewing techniques and garment construction.

Whether you're working in the industry, hoping to pursue academic study or are a home dressmaker seeking to improve your skillset, this course will help you develop your practical skills.

This course is ideal if you're already familiar with pattern drafting and cutting and would like to start developing your sewing techniques.

During the course you will:

- sew and assemble a shirt from start to finish
- use an overlocker, and learn how to set one up
- learn about grainlines and different types of fabrics and their suitability to different projects
- cut, lay, fold and bias cut on reverse fabrics
- fuse fabrics, and learn why fabrics are fused differently
- make buttonholes and understand different buttonhole construction.

You’ll be introduced to the techniques through group demonstrations, handling samples, paper-based instructions and one-to-one feedback.

What will I gain?

By the end of the course, you’ll be able to confidently manufacture a garment with professional sewing techniques.
