Tailors and Dressmakers

High School

While in high school, you should get as much experience as you can by taking any sewing, tailoring, and clothing classes offered by vocational or family and consumer science departments. There are also a number of institutions that offer either on-site or home-study courses in sewing and dressmaking. Art classes in sketching and design are also helpful. Math classes, such as algebra and geometry, will help you hone your ability to work with numbers and to visualize shapes.
