There are plenty of resources available that can help you hone your skills. We started our journey of online tailoring classes during the Covid. Covid taught us many things. When we started this back in 2020, we were not sure whether this initiative will be a success or a failure. But, with time, this has been proved to be a bigger success than our physical classroom training. There are plenty of students from all parts of India join our online tailoring classes, enrol in basic tailoring courses, advanced tailoring courses, fashion designing and textile designing courses. Following are few of the reviews by our online students. These are the testimony of our successful journey so far, as an online basic to advanced tailoring course provider.

However, our classes focus on imparting crucial knowledge such as the cutting process, measurements, and calculations. This approach provides students with a clear understanding of how to properly cut fabric and where to sew it.

We recommend that, if you choose to purchase an Usha sewing machine, you take advantage of the machine demo offered by Usha representatives. This will allow you to receive a personalized, in-depth demonstration of the machine's operation and capabilities.

How much does it cost to learn tailoring?

If you're looking for a diploma certificate, it will cost an additional 2000/- examination fee at the end of the course. This certificate may be necessary if you're seeking a tailoring job in a manufacturing company, fashion house, or government enterprise. However, if you're only looking to gain knowledge to set up your own business, then you can skip the certification.

Apart from the course fee, you'll need to buy cotton fabric for practice and some tailoring tools which can be bought from our school. The fabric cost is significant but you can use your old cotton clothes for practice, and while learning, you'll be making clothes for yourself and your family members which saves on buying new clothes.

The major cost for learning tailoring is buying a tailoring machine. The cost of a machine can vary greatly depending on the type of machine and its features. It's important to buy a machine based on your actual needs, and not overspend on a machine with features you won't use. If you already have an iron base sewing machine, you can fit a motor for heavy use instead of buying a new machine.

There are many aspects to consider before buying a machine, and we're here to help you make the best choice. So, if you're interested in pursuing a career in tailoring, we encourage you to join our basic tailoring course at Disha Fashion Institute.
