Do you want to learn how to make extravagant costumes? Maybe you need to create a fabulous outfit for an upcoming event, festival or drag show.

If you already know the basics of clothesmaking, then this course is for you! Our fun, practical course will ensure you become confident making garments to fit. You'll reach a high level of competence by using commercial patterns, or creating your own, and choosing fabrics and styles that compliment you.
