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.

If you’re interested in pursuing a career or further education in fashion design and garment creation, are a hobbyist who would like to add more flare to your work or you love fashion but lack the technical knowledge to create garments, this course will fill in the missing pieces.
