Beginner Draping Advanced Atlanta Private Sewing Class Lessons

Private Lesson: Draping



Private lessons that cover draping and dressmaking skills.

To get your lesson on the schedule, please refer to the calendar below and provide the date and instructor your are requesting.

You’ve been sewing garments from patterns and are ready to take your sewing skills to the next level — enter draping and dressmaking. During 4 hours of private draping lessons, you’ll learn techniques for creating a custom dress in a simple silhouette. One-on-one, we’ll create a muslin drape, transfer it to pattern paper, and cut the pattern from fashion fabric.

Cost: $340 covers a 4-hour private lesson. Most students can finish a bodice sloper within a 4-hour lesson. Your 4-hour session can be booked all at once or broken up into two 2-hour sessions. Additional time can be purchased if needed. Private sewing lessons are booked in 2+ hour blocks at a rate of $85/hour.
