How to learn how to sew. Choosing sewing courses
Every woman wants to be unique and unique. For a long time already no one wants to dress “like everyone else”, in fashion – individuality.
And it reaches her as best she can, by all available methods – someone will tie a handkerchief around her neck, someone will pin a brooch. But to find a suitable outfit – both beautiful and qualitative, and preferably in a single copy, and that in the figure “sat” perfectly – it is almost impossible.
But there is still a way out: you can sew clothes yourself!
Probably, in you from the school bench there lives a reverential horror before the sewing machine, instilled in you at the lessons of labor. However, not everything is so terrible, and any woman, who has two hands, two legs and one head, can master the sewing process.
If you have a commercial vein, you can go even further. Many women, after completing courses in cutting, sewing and modeling, open their own author’s workshops and workshops.
This kind of business has been gaining momentum in recent years. Sewing in such a workshop is cheaper than in the fashion house of a famous fashion designer, with a sufficiently high quality, because such private workshops value their reputation and are fighting for each client.
In addition to the studio, you can open your own courses and train all art-hungry modeling and tailoring. This is also bread, and given the fact that lately more and more women want to master the sewing skill, the demand for such educational institutions will only grow.
Many graduates of educational complexes subsequently get a job in prestigious fashion saloons, ateliers, theater workshops, if there is no desire to open their business. Even abroad, the acquired knowledge will serve well, because there also live women who want to dress beautifully or be able to sew.
It’s never too late to study, and study prolongs youth, do not forget about it! The more you learn new in your life, the longer you will keep a twinkle in your eyes and clarity of thought.
Now you are sitting with the baby, every day you do not have to go to work, so that “quiet time” can be devoted to an interesting and important thing – a useful business.
Do you remember what purpose you set yourself? Learn how to sew!
And this means that you are ready to take things seriously and study diligently. So forget about the short courses, where you are promised to teach you this art in a couple of months. During this time, you will not be able to learn much, unless you devote sewing 24 hours a day.
In our situation, this is impossible, because the main part of the day we devote to caring for the baby. Therefore, focus on courses where the training lasts from one year and longer.
But now there are a lot of authoring techniques, so you can pick up such courses, where they teach the system you need. At the end of the course, most of the training centers issue a certificate that indicates the topics covered and marks on the passing of exams and exams.
Credits are held, as a rule, after passing a certain topic. For example, you have finished the topic "skirt", which means that it will be necessary to sew this product to the practical part of the offset.
In addition, it is necessary to perform a certain number of modeling drawings and to work out the stages of technological processing of the skirt on the samples: spline, cut, lightning stitching, prying the belt, folds, coquette and so on. Exams are held at the end of each academic year on the topics covered for this year.
If it is important for you to obtain an official secondary special or higher education in needlework, it is better to pay attention to state colleges and institutes.
It is possible that even once a week it is problematic for you to escape somewhere without a child. And maybe, in your area there are simply no schools of cutting and sewing.
There is still a way out - to comprehend the elements of mastery independently under the guidance of the teacher, that is, in absentia. There is an opinion that it is impossible to learn how to sew in absentia. But if you really want something and strongly apply to this maximum effort, the results will necessarily appear.
Needles will need different size and thickness, with small and large "ears"; pins buy ordinary, without colored balls - "heads" - with them it will be difficult to steam and iron the product in the process of sewing. Do not forget about graph paper, paper for drawing, pencils (hard and soft), compasses, plastic patterns, ruler cutter, tracing paper and notebook.
All this will be required for modeling.
If the desire to become a business lady in you has not died out, then opening your own studio or workshop can be an excellent way of expressing yourself and earning money. However, only to be able to create impeccably clothes of any complexity is not enough for this. First of all, it is necessary to decide for whom exactly you will create your products, that is, to determine the contingent of potential customers: perhaps it will be children, or pregnant women, middle-income people, or, conversely, wealthy ladies and gentlemen.
If you do not accurately determine the target audience, your case will not be successful. Based on the goals, you can calculate what equipment and how much you need, and then look for places where it can be bought cheaper than usual.
The world of fashion and beauty should become your second life. You will need to constantly be aware of all the vagaries of fashion, new technologies of tailoring and modeling, that is, you must become a real expert in your field, and your enterprise must keep pace with the times and needs of your customers.
