Even if you’re not an aspiring fashion designer, you might want to take advantage of some free fashion design classes being offered online. Learning how to make your own clothes means you can recreate the designer looks you spot on celebs for a lot less—and create completely unique looks your friends will love.
The University of Fashion is an awesome new online resource for learning the basics of sewing and design. The site has tons of video tutorials in Draping, Pattern Making, Sewing, Fashion Art and Product Development—all for free! Plus, all the clips are made by real life fashion college professors and industry professionals, so you know they’re totally legit.
If you do have dreams of becoming the next Kate Spade, the site certainly isn’t a total substitution for traditional college training, but it’s definitely a good way to learn the basics before you head off to design school!
