Fashion - Making a Jacket - Creative Design and Pattern Cutting Intermediate

What's the course about?

This intermediate level jacket making course offers you a structured programme to develop your existing pattern cutting and making skills.

To gain the most from the course you must have previous experience in pattern cutting and garment construction at an intermediate level.

What will I study?

Learner hours: 25

You will be learning a range of manipulation techniques including collar, sleeve, and pockets to produce a garment on a more complex level. The course will start with structured group exercises accompanied by hand outs and will finish with a personal project where you will have the opportunity to draft a specification drawing based on your own design. You will then complete a jacket pattern and produce your own casual jacket.

Lesson outcomes

Week by week the tutor will demonstrate how to draft a pattern of each component of the jacket and demonstrate the construction techniques.

  • How to translate the design into a silhouette master pattern and a final pattern of your chosen jacket
  • How to choose fabric according to design
  • Construction techniques according to design

There will be an induction for all students on the university's industrial sewing machines and pressing equipment.

Booking deadlines

Bookings for all Creative Arts Short Courses will be reviewed 2 weeks before the start date of each course. This will allow the Short Course team to determine whether a course has met the minimum number of students needed for the class to run. If a class has failed to recruit, the class will be re-scheduled and you will be informed. Where relevant you will be offered an alternative class. If the course has met minimum numbers, bookings will stay open to the course start date or until it has met maximum numbers.

We encourage you to book early before the deadline to avoid disappointment.

Bookings for all short courses need to be made online through the Universities’ online booking system, before a course commences. You cannot enroll or attend a class on the day the course starts, without prior arrangement.
