Develop your hand-sewing techniques whilst learning essential skills used in the fashion industry to make and finish couture clothing. Using a unique dress pattern specifically designed for this course you will have a choice to customise a mini, midi or maxi length for your finished dress. We will end with a photoshoot of your miniature dress on a quarter-scale tailor’s dummy, looking at lighting and the best way to present your finished work.

Rowena Luke-King is a short course tutor at Central Saint Martins who specialises in teaching hand-sewing skills.
