Now if you visit other forums my may see this question posted, I’m tired of looking for an online school. And just really need to take matter into my own hands.
I really want to learn fashion design but going to school right now is not an option for me right now ( I have eight kids and not in my home country). I’ve been looking online for months now for an online school and only found one and its expensive, so I can’t do that and the other two Foster Career and Stratford look as if they just send you text they rewritten and just test you on what you read ,not skill. I have plenty of books so I don’t need that. etelestia is affordable but they seem to use some special system that needs special equipment, I don’t think that is a good idea since the items are not easy to get. I have bought a lot of books on patternmaking and construction but I don’t know where to start nor have someone to ask if I’m not sure about something. I’m trying Cal Patch’s book as a starting point but the armhole is just not coming out right for me, I have not made it up in muslin because getting that stuff is not easy so I have wait to get some more but why waste it when just looking at the draft I can tell its not right ( or at least not look right to me). The last winner of Project Runway a self taught designer so I know it can be done I just don’t know were to start or best route. How did you do it? Where did you start? How do I progress? I want to make my own designs and independence from the pattern companies when I want it ( I still like Burda). I want to be able to sell my own designs and maybe my own patterns someday.
I have some what of a plan right now. I’m currently finding good basic patterns that I can make for myself that I can restyle to work on my construction skills, build my wardrobe and also because I still love to sew, I know that some designers don’t. This should free up more of my limited time to put into learning other skills . How and where to start I don’t know.
TIA to anyone that replies to my rant.
