Students will have the choice to make an outfit (i.e. hoodie, P.J’s, skirt, dress, etc) and non-wearable product they can use(bag, cushion, beanbag, quilt, soft toy, etc). Students will learn the skills of using a commercial pattern. Not only will they learn how to construct their products by using hand and machine sewing techniques, but they will also learn how to print and decorate their products.

This elective also involves a community project at the end of the semester giving students the opportunity to work for a client.

Students research suitable materials and are expected to produce a design folio and complete written tasks.

This elective prepares students who wish to undertake Year 10 Fashion Making.

All students are expected to have their own sewing kit. Extra fabric may need to be purchased depending on product.
