DRESSMAKING FOR BEGINNERS


SEW YOUR WARDROBE IN 90 DAYS

Imagine making chic outfits for yourself ANYTIME you want…

Do you find your creative imaginations running faster than your ability to actually make those outfits correctly? Lol. We totally get it. It can be quite frustrating especially as an absolute beginner.

If you crave to learn how to sew, to see yourself making fashionable outfits for yours truly then you are in the right place.

Hello! Our names are Folasade (wearing the chic brown shift dress) and Wonderfull.

Our purpose is helping ladies like you acquire excellent garment making skills so they can confidently make outfits for themselves as desired / build a business from this skill.

“You give room for questions and take time to break it down.”

I am not saying this to tease you but you are still the best. You are always considerate and understand that some people are working and could have busy schedules. You are very tolerant.

Does this ring a bell?

You really want to learn to sew but you do not have the time for physical classes

You tried learning in the past but those skills are now rusty and you want to start afresh

You have a 9 – 5 job yet you’ve always dreamed of learning to sew

You wonder if you can ever find someone to teach you step by step all the way

You have had enough of disappointments from “tailors” and decided to learn how to make your clothes (Enough is enough, lol).

If any of these points hit home, it’s because we have been through that path.

Until we decided to find a way to make it work.

This is why S.E.W Academy was birthed. To help ladies like you learn how to sew your outfits with EASE and perhaps launch your own home business.

The Dressmaking for Beginners Course is not just any other course out there. It’s something better. Starting Monday 16th October and running all through till 19th January 2018, it’s a course created with a strong support system to ensure that you achieve all that you have set out to become. Making your own clothes confidently. Making outfits that make people think you bought it. Yes, it’s sew possible.

We created this “no stress” 90-day online course for ladies who want more without having to sacrifice their schedules to grow their skills and earn profitably from it. Your life does not have to stop because you are taking dressmaking classes. And learning with us means you’d have more time in your schedule to achieve other activities equally important to you.

As the saying goes “it’s a beautiful thing when a career and a passion come together.”

IT’S TIME TO RECEIVE VALUE FROM ACQUIRING THIS SKILL.

THIS COURSE IS NOT FOR YOU IF:

♦ Dressmaking is not “your thing” and you do not want to become much better at it

♦ You do not believe in investing in yourself to acquire this skill

♦ You are not ready to put in the work and possibly start your own business

Every thing about this Dressmaking for Beginners Course is designed to help you get from where you are to where you ought to be – a CONFIDENT dressmaker.

We will be showing you not only the steps you need but also vital tips and tricks many beginners miss out when learning. These are what we have learned personally over the years.

We create a SAFE learning atmosphere filled with SUPPORT, ACCOUNTABILITY, FLEXIBILITY AND EASE.

We’ll be there to support you every step while learning. Also you’ll work better when you have others to help you stay accountable.

Learning hours are solely dependent on your schedules. You need not feel constrained to “show up” at certain hours. We’ll work with what works for you. The best part is how easy and enjoyable you’ll find your classes. Remember, we make it Sew Easy for YOU.

This is the best time to get started. We’d be relaunching this course in five or six months time in 2018 and it would definitely not be at this amount. Think about all the chic outfits that you would have made within six months if you enroll NOW. We’re sure you’ve heard enough parables about seizing opportunities when they come.

No need for too much story. Lol. Plug in now and watch yourself bloom under our tutelage. You deserve this opportunity.

WHAT YOU’LL BE LEARNING:

It’s very important you build the right foundation first by learning important basics before undertaking any major sewing project.

“I did not only learn how to sew but my confidence in sewing increased.”

I participated in one of the previous courses and to say I was immensely blessed is an understatement. All I learnt before now was self taught. I can proudly say this course was worth it.

“Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple of years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not.”
