Sewing/Unit78 Fashion Media Techniques and Technology


Hi Donna!

My name is Sally and i'm a Business and Fashion student in Holland. I'm working on my Unit 78 called: '' Fashion Media Techniques and Technology.

Besides the Technology part, we also have to investigate the basic pattern cutting. garment construction techniques, garment finishing methods and different kind of fastening methods. My question was, can you share your methods on sowing, and the process on making perhaps a pair of basic pants, or a t-shirts. This could be a great part of my assignment, and I will also include your name!

Thankyou, and have a nice day =)

How is this possible as this is a practical skill.
I have taught sewing classes where students construct from American patterns.
That would include butterick, simplicity, mccalls and vogue if you are looking them up.
However, you would have to take a class to learn these skills.
There is no way to answer this question.
