Elizabeth Cooper: Tailoring Academy
Full time seamstress Elizabeth applied for grant funding to help towards her Tailoring Academy Course. The Tailoring Academy delivers qualifications in both cutting and tailoring within the ABC Level 5 Diploma in Bespoke Tailoring. The course is delivered by Brita Hirsch, a bespoke tailor and textile engineer with nearly 30 years of experience in the sector.
I joined the Tailoring Academy in 2021 to commence training for the ABC Level 5 Diploma in
Bespoke Tailoring (Cutting and Tailoring Pathways). With over 4 and a half years
professional experience as a seamstress behind me (firstly carrying out alterations, then
making made-to-order garments) I was keen to progress into bespoke tailoring.
