This course will consolidate the skills gained in the earlier tailoring course and you will also produce a bespoke tailored jacket. It will cover a range of tailoring techniques and by the end of the 12-week course, you will have gained a range of transferable specialist skills that will allow you to design and create quality garments that fit perfectly. You will also produce your own bespoke tailored jacket. To get the most out of the course, you will need intermediate sewing skills and there is an expectation that you will be able to do some of the work in your own time.
No prior qualifications are necessary for this course, however to get the most out of it you should have intermediate level sewing skills.
