Course Objectives

The goal of this course is to train students (including total beginners) to become professional dressmakers, whose job is to transform the drawing of the stylist into a pattern and, ultimately, to monitor its development into a finished garment.

Students will learn about pattern making and sewing techniques, practicing on maintaining the correct proportions, respecting the original style of a design and supervising the quality of production.

What does dressmaker do?

The dressmaker is responsible for supervising the development of all garments related to a collection, being able to make last minute changes or interventions, when required by the stylist.

They must be good at stress-management, as they will most likely find themselves improvising in a rush, without possibility to compromise the quality of their work.
