IS THE COURSE CURRICULUM DIFFERENT FOR EACH PROGRAM?
A few of the items are exactly the same in both programs:
measuring and pattern making
bra cup & elastic bonus training in modules 4
the 1.5 hours of training of "must know" rhinestoning tips
Some modules overlap the types of information offered, but are further specialized for the particular program. These modules include:
design and materials
cutting, basting and sewing
By popular request I recently decided to co-share these two programs:
mesh sleeves and upper body mesh coverage = original to the Advanced program, is now included in the ballgown program. This includes training to make mesh sleeves that cover the chest and back but has no armhole seams.
complete basic ballgown skirt training = original to the ballgown program, is now included in the advanced program.
straight and fluted skirts
godets and gores
hem techniques: fishing line, crinoline (horsehair), rolled edge
Please watch the video (top of this page) or read the brochure (the next two Qs in this section) for more details about the curriculum and the exact schedule.
Please watch the video above (with the black and white dotted dress) beginning at about the 13:00 mark for photo examples of both basic and advanced dresses ... OR ... watch the two short videos below made especially to introduce each of the programs.
