This course will teach you my personal insight into what First Year sewing “should” include. Hi my name is Tunku Adhikari. I am a Fashion Educator and Designer based in Melbourne, Australia. I have taught in the field of Fashion and Design for over 20 years.

I say “should” because we are slowly becoming less and less hands on, especially since the pandemic. It is a course that includes tips and tricks that I use personally, learnt over the years.

Ten Skills That You Need In Sewing As A Beginner is a course I designed based on what I believe a 1st Year Fashion student should know before transitioning into 2nd Year. These topics are based on questions from students that I have answered for over 20 years. You could say it is a problem-solving guide for sewing.

Our Promise to You

By the end of this course, you will have a better understanding of how to create better quality fashion.
