Detailed Review: Once the art of stitching seemed really exciting, and tough at the same time. I wanted to learn and be my own seamstress. After browsing through multiple webpages and sites, my search ended on Disha Fashion Institute, an institution affiliated with USHA International. I undertook Diploma In Sewing & Designing course for 6 months. I attended offline classes and slowly began to experience confidence. Thanks to Monalisha ma'am, Sarmistha ma'am and Amrita ma'am. The best part is offcourse the teachers, who taught us in a way that a beginner should be taught. During the 1st outbreak of the pandemic, the classes were switched to online, which actually turned out to be an absolute stress buster for me and helped me to completely devote my time in the pursuit of the art. I thank my teachers for bringing out the best in me. Without their support, this would not have been possible. It's true that learning never ends, but I am confident with everything that I have learnt in these 6 months. If you are a beginner, with an enthusiasm to learn the art of stitching, then Disha Fashion Institute can definitely lead the way in your journey.

If you are looking for diploma certificate, then it will cost 2000/- examination fee at the end of the course before appearing for the exam. If you are looking for a tailoring job, in a manufacturing company, fashion house, Government enterprise, then the diploma certificate will be necessary for which you need to bear the extra cost. But, if you are only looking for the knowledge to set up your own boutique or tailoring business, then you can skip the certification. In Disha Fashion Institute, the basic tailoring course only costs 700/- per month which is negligible with respect to the tailoring accessories you will need. You will need to buy cotton fabric for practice apart from the tailoring tools described above. The tailoring accessories which are absolutely necessary for the class, can be bought from our school as well. The fabric cost is significantly large to stitch 60+ patterns taught in basic tailoring course syllabus.
