WHAT HAVE PEOPLE SAID ABOUT THIS COURSE.
“I thoroughly enjoyed both courses (Shirt and Trouser Making Professional Sewing Skills), I found them very useful and I learned a great deal in a short space of time. The teacher clearly had huge experience; her instruction was very good and appeared to be pitched at the right level for each student, each of whom was working at a different pace. I chose Fashion Antidote because I could not otherwise find short courses to fill the gaps in my knowledge, at a level of professionalism and cost I felt comfortable with.”
