Adult Learner Programme:  Italian Pattern Making

an enriching fashion experience

It is ironic that once one’s fashion sense has crystalized one tends to become dissatisfied with what is available commercially. Knowing exactly what you want makes it hard to settle for less.

Elizabeth Malherbe, founder of the Elizabeth Galloway Academy of Fashion, has come up with the ideal solution.

Elizabeth Galloway is running a part time Adult Learners course in Italian Pattern Making. Participants learn to draw up patterns for garments from scratch, to their own measurements and preferences. This will enable them to in future sew their own unique, well-fitting clothes, or even become entrepreneurs who make garments for others.

The Adult Learners Italian Pattern Making class is fun as well as instructive. We maintain a perfect balance between imparting a particular skills set and allowing creativity to flourish. What you learn here, will have you wearing amazing garments for the rest of your life!

There is no age restrictions or academic requirement for joining the programme, but you need intermediate experience in sewing and making clothes, as introductory skills do not form part of this course.
