GARMENTS OF INTERMEDIATE DIFFICULTY
(For information on the Dressmaking Course for basic garments, please click here)
The dressmaking course is designed for intermediate and advanced sewers who want to learn how to fit and sew a more complex commercial pattern.
Suggested garments that students would undertake include a shirt with a collar and sleeves, a dress with sleeves, or tailored pants with pockets. This is a follow-on from the beginners’ course and basic sewing skills are assumed for these workshops.
- Quality equipment selection
- Haberdashery requirements for sewing
- Appropriate fabric selection
- Pattern styles for figure types
- What correct garment fit entails
- Fabric pre-shrinking, layout and pattern making/cutting
- Advanced sewing techniques including:
* zippers, including invisible zips
* ease stitching and gathering
* button holes
* lining garments
* hand finishing and hand hemming
The dressmaking classes are run in an informal format at our Sydney college, and students are invited to observe techniques that apply to each other’s garments. Students work at their own pace for these workshops, allowing them to complete, on average, two garments during the course.
Students need to purchase a commercial pattern and fabric. Advice concerning the type of commercial pattern and information on fabric selection will be supplied upon enrolment in the course.
Students may bring their own sewing machine to classes but this is not mandatory. Sewing equipment required may be ordered through in2mode Sydney.
A total of 20 hours over 5 classes of 4 hours a week (daytime session) or 8 classes of 2.5 hours a week (evening session).
