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).

WHAT YOU’LL BE LEARNING:

MONTH 1:

> Induction & orientation.

> How to use a sewing machine confidently. (Threading, loading your bobbin etc.)

> Names & functions of your sewing machine parts

> How to care for your sewing machine and what to do when faults arise

> How to work with sewing accessories (which are truly life savers!)

> Different stitches essential in garment making and how to sew with each of them.

> Beginner projects using straight stitches such as throw pillow, kids’ bed sheet, tote bag and a few more) Not to worry, we’re teaching you how to do these.

> Beginner projects using curved stitches with circle and zigzag projects.

> You’ll be given tasks to do as assignment.

MONTH 2:

> Fundamentals of fabrics and how to correctly use them. (Selvage, grainlines & bias. Their meanings and working with them.)

> Types of seam finishes and when/how to use each (these are techniques used in achieving a “polished” look in any outfit)

> How to create several necklines (can be used for any outfit you desire to make in the near future).

> Finishing necklines with facings (you’ll learn what facing means, when to use it, the importance of using it)

> How to make tops (this is to help you understand the basics of making any top you desire to make later on)

> How to make a chic kimono jacket

> You’ll be given tasks to do as assignment.

MONTH 3:

⇒ How to insert different zips into any outfit and get a neat look as should be.

⇒ How to make your own button holes (should you ever desire to use buttons instead of a zip in the future)

⇒ How to work with different fasteners for any outfit (hooks)

⇒ How to make pleats and gathers suitable for tops / skirts.

⇒ How to make skirts: pleated (two types) skirts, gathered skirt, wrap skirts (circle and straight, straight skirt

⇒ How to construct and insert a proper waistband into any outfit

⇒ How to make an A-line dress and a dress with gathers.

⇒ You’ll be given tasks to do as assignment.

So much value in one course! At the end of this course, you would be able to make several tops, skirts and dresses. And not just making them but making each one with renewed confidence. Best of all you’d know how to interpret styles you may come across in the future.

Also, you would have built your confidence in using a sewing machine, knowing how to use different fabrics, confidently constructing your garments, finishing your seams excellently thereby achieving a flawless “ready-to-wear” look.

You’d also have learned how to work with your machine accessories which makes sewing life sew much easier. .

“The class covered so many areas too, simple enough for a beginner, detailed enough for a pro.”

I have learnt a lot from this course, and yes, I’m still getting orders for my outfits till date.

“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.
