The Dressmaker's Portfolio Level 3 - Starts 11th April 2018 FULLY BOOKED

The Dressmaker’s Portfolio Level 3 is a three month introduction to pattern cutting & design where students will learn the skills needed to design and create a handmade wardrobe. 


This course is a chance to build a portfolio of samples and garments which can be used to start designing & creating your handmade wardrobe, take forward into higher education or a fashion related career.


Based on the Moulage technique which you will be able to use to design your own clothes and alter commercial patterns, you do not have to complete previous levels to take this course but you will need a good understanding of dressmaking and construction


One project will be set to be completed during the 3 months – either 1 garment designed from scratch or 2 co-ordinating garments created using pattern cutting skills to alter/add to the design of a commercial pattern
