Dressmaking Course

The Course

Our method is based on a simple and intuitive concept with just one aim: make every kind of clothing. All bases are made freehand without the use of pre­built templates or graduated squares. At the end of the course, after having made many patterns, the student will be able to produce any outfit from a simple shirt to an elegant suit, from a skirt to a coat, from underwear to wedding gowns. The Burgo method is both traditional and new at the same time; the flavour of the ancient tailoring tradition is combined with modern creativity, always evolving with time. That's why the practice and the search regarding the materials are fundamental and instrumental to the academic and professional preparation. It's very important, step by step, to have constant contact with the teacher. Each student is followed and advised, always with respect for his own individuality. For this reason there cannot be more than 8 students per teacher.

This course is available at Milan branch or at Rome branch and it is also suitable for the 1+1 attendance (one year in Rome and one in Milan).
