Recommended for those who are intermediate to advanced sewing level.
The focus in this course is to learn Patternmaking skills to be able to draft a pattern to your own design or from designer inspired clothing. The Patternmaking Method, which has been developed by Dragana Edwards, is only available for purchase from Dragana Edwards.
It is expected that most of the sewing would be done in your own time, whilst you focus on learning to develop a pattern in class time. We can discuss sewing techniques and tips and if you wish to improve a certain skill of sewing, you are most welcome to sew in class, but you may not finish the patternmaking course in 12 weeks.
Note: This is mostly suited for petite to medium sizes. (Australian Standard sizing 8 to 16). Larger sizes are challenging and may need more manipulation to reach desired outcome. Please contact Dragana Edwards for further details.
