1. Fashion Design and Dressmaking: Learn Fashion Design And Dressmaking 

This course will give you a complete understanding of fashion design and dressmaking. You will be guided through the history and principles of the subject, the formulation and presentation of ideas, the design process, understanding the materials and tools you’ll work with, and creating your own garments.

To gain an enhanced appreciation of fashion you will learn where it’s been and how it has evolved into what it is today. You’ll look at how changes in social landscape and economics have necessitated development within the fashion industry. You’ll learn the skills required to be successful, the different kinds of professions and specialities in the industry, and the benefits of a formal education in fashion.

Good fashion design is based on certain rules of aesthetic. You will explore the basic principles of aesthetics, including proportion, balance, harmony, rhythm, repetition, radiation, scale, gradation, emphasis and contrast. From this, you will understand the importance good aesthetics have in enhancing and refining creative elements in fashion.

Lines, form, shape, texture, pattern and colour. These are the elements that determine the features of a dress and distinguish one style from another. Through studying the Fashion Design and Dressmaking Course you will gain an appreciation of each of these elements and how they come together.

It is important to be able to clearly express your ideas before the manufacturing of a garment begins. This course will talk you through presenting your ideas through hand drawings and computer software and the details that should be included for specific markets.

Success in fashion relies on a solid understanding of the design process. The Fashion Design and Dressmaking Course talks you through the importance of being able to predict fashion trends, gaining inspiration, and using colour boards and sketchbooks to formulate ideas.

The course talks you through the art of dressmaking and how to work through a brief with a client so that you know exactly what they want and can help them to make decisions. You will learn how to study the structure of the wearer, design the clothes, and select appropriate fabrics and embellishments.

Dressmaking requires certain basics tools, most of which can be found in a typical sewing kit. From safety pins to dressmaker’s dummies, the Fashion Design and Dressmaking Course talks you through all of the equipment that you need, outlining the importance and function of each item.

You will learn about the various types of fabric, their specific qualities and common uses, how to care for and prepare each, and the additional materials used in the creation of various garments. The course provides a guide to the amount of fabric that you need to create some classic garments, such as skirts, dresses and blouses and describes some of the tools and techniques used to mark and cut cloth.

You have two methods of putting your garments together at your disposal – manual sewing and machine sewing. The Fashion Design and Dressmaking Course talks through some of the equipment used in sewing, it provides illustrated guidance on some basic manual stitches and explains how to use a sewing machine.

In addition to all you will learn about fashion and dressmaking, the course provides classic layouts for common garments, including dresses, skirts, tops, trousers, and jackets. For each layout, the course discusses the design of the garment and explains what you will need and how to make each one.

2. Sewing: Learn Basic And Advanced Sewing Techniques

Learn basic and advanced sewing techniques, a range of machine and hand stitching types, the equipment you need and how to use it, how to measure correctly and choose the right fabrics, how to follow commercial patterns and create your own, and how to build a business. You’ll even put your new-found skills to practice in 8 guided projects to get your portfolio started off.

For some, the most off-putting part of learning to sew is getting to grips with the sewing machine itself. The Sewing Course begins by removing all trepidation, teaching you the basic parts and functions of your sewing machine, no matter which brand you have. You will quickly learn how to operate a sewing machine, including how to thread the bobbin and thread your sewing machine, and even gain the confidence to troubleshoot any minor problems that may arise, and understand how to care for your machine.

Another area that may at first seem baffling, is the array of tools available to the sewer. The course introduces you to the basic tools and accessories that you need to have in your sewing basket and outlines what each does.

Before working on a garment for yourself or a client, it is important to take accurate measurements. You will learn how to correctly measure women and men and the importance of rechecking measurements as years go by, to allow for changes in weight or body shape.

Although the Sewing Course will teach you how to create your own custom-made projects, a great way to learn the basic principles of garment creation is by following commercial patterns. A skill every good sewer should possess, following commercial patterns, offers hands-on practice of the sewing techniques that you will use in with your own designs. This course shows you how to understand and follow commercial patterns.

Choosing a fabric for your project is an important step, as choosing incorrectly can ruin the look and feel of what you had envisaged. This course reviews natural and man-made fabrics, explaining the characteristics of various types of each and the ways in which they should be prepared for a project.

The Sewing Course provides practical instruction on basic and advanced sewing techniques including pressing, pinning, cutting, and marking fabric, how to insert a zipper, make buttonholes, and how to sew closures, such as hooks-and-eyes and snaps.

Basic hand and sewing machine stitches are covered comprehensively. Although sewing machines can sew many types of stitch, it is still important to learn how to make very basic hand stitches, as there are instances when machine sewing would be too aggressive for the fabric type or more difficult to use. You will learn how to employ a variety of hand and machine stitches and gain an understanding of when each should be used.

Whether you think you can draw or not, sketching is the quickest and most effective way of getting your ideas down and finessing them, making it an important skill to develop. You will learn the simple steps to getting an idea out of your mind and onto pattern paper, ready to be made.

The course takes all the skills you have learned and combines them into several projects for you to follow, all of which will help you to develop the various techniques you have learnt. Each project gives you a summary of the item that you will make, the materials you’ll need, and the skills you’ll develop, before giving you step-by-step guidance on how to create the piece. The fully-guided projects included in the course are:

  • Small Decorative Pillow

The Make-Up Artist Course takes students through everything they need to know to be successful in this rewarding career.

The course starts off by discussing what exactly a makeup artist is and what kind of market exists and then goes into the details of makeup for each body part, style and occasion, and concludes with some more technical factors of the profession that need to be keep in mind, such as the financial aspect of the industry.
