What you'll learn in this sewing class:

In this class, students will advance their skills by learning to drape their own clothing over a dress form. Students will learn the fundamentals of fashion draping, including understanding grainline, draping on the bias, and using styling tape. The instructor will work with each student to develop a final design project which will then be turned into a sewing pattern.This class will focus on the dress form, and students will make a sample draped blouse or skirt. 

Prerequisite: Sewing 101 or solid knowledge of sewing construction techniques.

Important Things to Note:
  • Our classes are designed to focus on a learned skill rather than a final product. At TAC, our mission is to provide skills and knowledge for a lifetime. 
  • 4-week students have access to Open Studio time for free during the month of class and up to a week after the class, to put their new knowledge to practice.
Are materials provided and included in cost of the class? Yes. 
All materials for sample making and learning the technique are included. Any additional materials will need to be supplied by the student based on their vision.

Teacher was good. Wish that it was tailored for knits. Wish it had a goal of a final finished piece. It felt like that after this class that they would offer another class to help finish the piece I designed and had a pattern for. Although they offer studio hours other than class time, it did not have a teacher to help you along.

It was okay. The instructor is obviously very knowledgeable, but she was unprepared and winging it. The dressforms weren't in great shape. Love TAC though, and I've had a great experience there overall.
