Since it is a sewing community, I was wondering if someone can have some advice. I am looking into taking Dressmaking and Design course at Penn Foster Career School. I have been getting tips and techniques from all over the place. I have books, magazines, and what seems like millions of links to various blogs and websites. I was born in Russia and learned how to sew by watching my mom and older sister, but never had any professional training. I have been looking into couture projects and the more resources I find, the more worried I grow that my sewing experience lacks some serious foundation. I want to complete this course and get a diploma in order to feel confident and organize my skills so later I can add to it by learning more in depth techniques. And who knows, maybe I can even earn some income. Does anyone know anything about this school? Perhaps, taken this course?
Thank you for any info in advance!

    Please don’t take this the wrong way but it doesn’t look awesome. Maybe that’s just me and my general distrust of online courses but sewing is something it’s nice to have a teacher in the room for instant help and to tell you if you’re doing it wrong but thought you were fine.

    Plus, the course content all seems pretty basic. You might find that you know a lot of it already. It’s hard to tell without knowing what you can do. :(

    Do you live in Australia? Try the tafe course. It’s fantastic. But try to go to a tafe that focuses on the sewing side, not the drawing side or fabrics side (and end up stapling your clothes together for the runway – as I’ve heard of some girls doing)
