Course Description

Never picked up a needle and thread in your life? Never fear, this is the course for you.

Burlesque performance goes hand in hand with costume making. For many who have never learnt to sew, getting performance costumes made by others is the only alternative and can be a very costly. 

This course is focused on Women's Classic Burlesque Costume design and creation. You WILL NOT learn to sew on a machine in this course, all of the objectives will be taught by implementing hand sewing and finishing techniques.

You will finish this course with a new classic costume - covered bra & knickers, panel skirt and embellished gloves, all matching.
