The seamstress, a figure with strong bargaining power, highly sought after in the production sector

The figure of the pattern maker is a fundamental figure to move from tailoring to product industrialization, but today the need is also felt for another profession: the prototypist seamstress. The seamstress who works in an atelier or company, must know how to put together a dress, a shirt, an outerwear garment, but also know the materials, finishes, accessories and the various stages of product development.

This figure, once professionally trained, has a strong bargaining power and is much sought after in the production sector. The courses, held in small classes of up to five students, require an attendance of at most two or three days per week with a duration that can vary according to personal needs and characteristics, with the possibility of enrolment at any time during the school year with a semi-customized program.

The work done during lessons is all hands-on, with the aim of being able to create any type of dress on paper and on fabric, and is carried out on life size (not scale) measurements.

Topics:

  • Hand seams and base stitches
  • Standard and invisible zip fitting
  • How to take measurements
  • Straight skirt and variations
  • Half and full-circle skirt
  • The basic bodice
  • Variation of bodice darts
  • The plain and asymmetrical dress
  • Collars and pockets
  • The sleeve
  • The shirt and waistcoat
  • The trousers
  • The jacket
  • Cutting technique
  • Positioning on paper
  • Making up on paper
  • Positioning on fabric
  • Making up on fabric
  • Correction of various defects for specific physical conformations
  • Draping
  • Summary of textile commodities
  • Making up a garment of your choice

From the outset, each lesson includes manual exercises on technical drawing, cutting, hand and machine sewing.

The course permits acquiring technical knowledge in the field of haute-couture artisan dressmaking, initially by studying 1/5 scale models and then in real size; the first works will be made on paper, then in fabric.

At the end of the course, each student will make a garment of their choice.

330 HOURS OF HANDS-ON TRAINING

The hands-on training is the most important part of the professional course of IGA Italian haute couture: it is performed inside renowned companies, carefully selected by the school management.

An aptitude interview makes it possible to understand the student's needs and motivations, useful for his or her correct placement in the different partner structures. Training attendance is flexible to meets the student's commitments, bearing in mind that weekly attendance (morning or afternoon) cannot be less than three working days and in any case cannot last more than 3 months.

An expert inside the company becomes the tutor of the IGA student, accompanying him/her along an evolutionary teaching path that goes from basic preparation to details.

At the end of training, the IGA diploma is awarded, a passepartout for the world of work, as well as certifying the student's attendance at the course. It therefore represents true recognition of the experience acquired.
