Tailors and Dressmakers
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.
