Dress Making

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 the 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 the possibility to compromise the quality of their work.

Career Opportunities

The dressmaker can work independently, as part of a company, or by custom orders. They know how to create everything, from a plain shirt to an elegant suit, from a skirt to a coat, from underwear to wedding gowns. It is very important for the dressmaker to know both traditional and more innovative techniques and to implement them within their work.
