The course curriculum follows one trajectory: to get you from tailoring beginner to professional dressmaking level! The models you’ll sew were chosen with great care and diligence to strike the perfect balance between appropriate progress and steep learning curve. That way, we can guarantee consistent learning success from the first unit to the last.
In addition to optimal learning progress, we also want to provide you with versatile cuts that allow your creativity to shine. Using your choice of fabric in favourite colors and patterns, the results are as individual as you! Tailor your own works of art from day one, according to your own imagination.

Sew like a professional
At Tailor Academy, we love to work productively on new favorite pieces from the very beginning. The classes contain useful expert tips exactly when and where you need them so you can practice right away. And after each unit, you’ll hold a finished item in your hands. With a little bit of practice, you will create amazing gifts or even earn a little extra income from the first lessons on.

Our Apprentices' Successes
“”Practice makes perfect. And of course the many expert tips help.”
1st place Apprentice Competition
We and the entire company congratulate our son Vinzenz Wimmer (10th generation) on 1st place in the national apprentice competition as well as on his excellent success in the final certificate.
Theresa Leitner has successfully passed the journeyman’s exams for women’s and men’s dressmakers and received an award for her achievements. The entire Wimmer schneidert team commends her for this great success!
“Thanks for the great training!”
“With a practice-oriented training you have a clear advantage when the craft is evaluated”
Lisa Rasser was named national champion at the AustrianSkills competition 2018! AustrianSkills is a challenging multi-day event where participants have to prove their skills and dexterity. The entire Wimmer team is proud of our winner!
Apprentice Of The Year
Leonhard was named apprentice of the year, seen here at the award ceremony with Governor Wilfred Haslauer and WKS Vice President Peter Genser. He is now a women’s dressmaker, a men’s dressmaker and a “Säckler” (a maker of leather clothing).
“Thank you for introducing me to tailoring.”
“I really learned a lot. Thanks for the training!”
Two excellent successes
Two excellent successes in the final apprenticeship exams for Michaela and Gregor in 2020. The entire Wimmer team is doubly proud of their excellent performances!
In the first unit, you already learn how to sew a simple summer dress. The course progresses at a decent pace, not pushing too hard, but quickly enough to ensure tangible results and a steep learning curve! Along the way, you get insights into the beautiful art of tailoring.
