                • Dressmaking classes

                  Hi guys, has anyone taken classes from Fun sewing by pernama?

                  Thinking of joining their elementary dressmaking class.

                  Does anyone have other suggestions for learning dressmaking somewhere central or in the east, other than the CCs? I've heard of Kadomay and good reviews but was hoping for something closer to home in the east.

                  Welcome all suggestions.

                    Hi
                    Tzi Yi uses both the home machines and also industrial machines
                    i came from Kardomay previously and was disappointed when they only had home machines available to students,. coz i wana master dressmaking as a profession, so i wanted to learn how to use a industrial machine.
                    ]For a start, u *** not buy any machine. coz if u r planning to sign u with Tzi Yi you can yuse the machines in school. the teachers will try to teach u how to use the industrial machines, n only if u r confident then i suggest u get a 2nd hand industrial (prob about 400-500 in the market)
                    It really depends on how serious u r about learning, if its purely for hobby or making your own clothes or for your family, then invest in a good home machines (those u see in harvey norman, courts etc) this type is more than sufficient. if u r hard core then learn how to use the industrial machine, it sews like a workhorse n extremely hardy

                    u *** visit the school to talk to the teachers about their syllabus. they also accept students who wants to learn on a monthly basis, which is more flexible. also if u want to only learn how to sew certain designs and do not want to follow their standard syllabus this can also b arranged.

                    TAFF and other schools might not be a full fledged dressmaking school. Dressmaking is purely as the name implies, making dresses. Not merchandising, not fashion design, nor textile studies. All these are courses u will find in art schools, and maybe TAFF. If unpicking threads and doing technical drawings are what u dont mind doing, then dressmaking is for you. Else its really a very tough skill to master, not over a few months or 1 year or 2.

                    Hope this helps!

                      try along lavender rd, there r 2 of such shops side by side.
                      one of them is called *** YEW (*** Yew Shelving & Racks) they only have plain coloured ones, not with prints like what u show. they specialise in retail shelving and hangers etc. the other one i forgot the name, something like Niroex or what... but u can see them both easily. just a few doors apart

                      • Hello all - I'm a guy, and having built numerous things before (classical guitars, other woodworking stuff, and some failed attempts at clocks), I have been bitten by this bug that has led me to take a shot at shirtmaking, in particular men's shirts. As a caveat - I have a very respectable, but stressful job by day, and am married (before any assumptions are made of my motives, orientation or inclinations...!). I enjoy the intensity and satisfaction from creating and constructing something from a blank slate, thus the need to build something with my own hands again. Sewing, I've concluded, is a much cleaner and safer hobby versus the other things I've tried. I've picked up a couple of books (e.g. Shirtmaking by David Coffin, Fine Machine Sewing by Carol Laflin), and soon, hopefully, a sewing machine.

                        After scanning and perusing numerous forums and websites (locally, in Singapore), it seems that Pernama is the only one that offers a decent advertised men's shirtmaking course - I'm curious about the alternatives I have out there in terms of similar shirtmaking courses (there was a comprehensive one by LaSalle but registration is already closed), with Pernama being one of the options, before I pull the trigger, sign up and commit. Somewhere near Raffles Place or Tiong Bahru would be really great. I won't quit my day job for this, but like most interests I've delved into, I take things pretty seriously.

                        Would appreciate any feedback and responses.
                        Thanks very much in advance, and cheers.

                                    • hi i'm interested to get a sewing machine to sew clothes etc. initially thought of getting brother or singer but internet reviews from users seems not good and they swear by the higher end brands such as bernina and janome babklock etc. any recommendations?

                                      Comment


                                      • If any of you intend to learn dressmaking course at CC......DON'T! It may seem cheap to learn ($60-70/ 8 sessions at 3hrs per session), but I feel that it's a total waste of money & time! Avoid classes taught by Mdm Tan Yee Khim! She has no structure in teaching and she does all the work. Where is the learning? Beware that she only speaks Mandarin in her class too. Everybody in the class can sew any type of clothes, but shouldn't a beginner's class have everyone learning the same thing together? Because of this, 3hrs class is only like half hour class because Mdm Tan will go cut everybody's different draft pattern and the lesson becomes a waiting game.

                                        However, if you intend to just try & test if you have interest in this area, learning at CC will be a cheaper alternative to find out. But just don't expect much out of the class.

                                                • I have no time to sew, but I often order a print on clothing. For example, I do T-shirts with their pictures. It's very simple. I take a photo or picture, I correct it a little in Photoshop, and send the print here http://www.cmykonline.com.au/ Then I take away a ready-made t-shirt with my design. For me it's like a designer item) My friends suggested it to me, they have their own business.
