About the Course:
The Short Course in Jacket-Making & Trousers is a Ladieswear Course and it teaches how to create a proper tailored trouser suit - which is really a combination of a tailored trousers and tailored pants - from scratch!
The Course teaches the principles behind creating the pattern for both garments and the jacket can be worn as part of a formal suit or modified as a casual jacket.
The tailored pants is also suitable as part of a formal office suit or as part of a casual jumpsuit.
Please not that this Course is for experienced "sewers" only! You cannot take the Course if you do not know how to sew.

The fees are N70,000 for Martwayne students already in the system.
New students who have not registered for a sewing Course at Martwayne have to pay the following fees: N75,000 (fees) + N10,000 for the toolkit and an additional refundable caution fee of N10,000 to cover damages and extensions to the Course making a total of N95,000.
Regardless of the option you choose, the fees are all inclusive of your toolkit, handouts and writing materials and your training certificate (training certificate is issued only after all assignments have been submitted).
You will, however, be required to bring a fabric of your choice and your buttons - since I am sure you will want to wear the jacket. I am sure you have lots of unused fabrics lying in your closet so this should not be a problem. :-D
