Bespoke Tailoring Classes

This year the college is offering a sewing class in Sydney North to make bespoke tailored jackets or trousers. The course will teach you to fit a pattern and create the finishes used by bespoke tailors.

Using industry-standard techniques and equipment, you will learn to create a quality tailored garment. Your skills will provide the basis for creating further clothing and patterns, all in a collaborative group-based setting.

Create a Personal Dress Form

In 2017, the college is offering a new course that will enable students to create a personal dress form. They will make a contour fitting bodice for themselves and use the bodice to accurately pad an existing dummy to their measurements and body shape. Please contact the college for more information on this course.

Our sewing students have an advantage over their competition

Our tailoring course, dressmaking course and sewing class in Sydney give students an edge as they have the benefit of receiving tuition from a fashion design professional who has worked in the industry. Tutors can advise students on fabric and style selection to suit their individual body type. For those wanting to create a wardrobe for themselves, we recommend the short pattern making course offered at our Sydney college. These classes include more complex techniques for students who would like to design their own garments.
