Taking the techniques learned in the previous class (couture techniques), you will build a dress using fine fabrics and couture methods to create a garment that fits beautifully and is made impeccably.

Along the way you will:

  • Learn steps in taking a high-end garment from concept to completion
  • Create, modify, and perfect a muslin version of your pattern
  • Complete a dress with infrastructure and outer construction of a high end garment, including waist stays and underling
