Get a taste of the fashion industry

This short course is ideal for beginners interested in learning professional sewing and dressmaking techniques for industrial and domestic machines. You will learn some basic pattern alteration and fitting techniques so that you can create individual and professionally finished garments. You'll produce at least one garment and carry bag, possibly more depending on the level of complexity and your developing skills. Sewing machines and overlockers are supplied. It may be helpful to have your own machine to practice with and complete some work at home. Course details

How to enrol

 Yasmin Bridges

I wanted to learn how to make something from nothing!

I came to TAFE so that I could learn the skills to create something from nothing and as such my process has evolved since enrolling. I’ve loved the sustainable focus at TAFE Queensland East Coast - I was really pleasantly surprised and didn't expect it. Learning pattern construction has meant that my designs now have a better fit and are more wearable.
