Frequently asked questions about the free trial course

Yes, the course is 100% free. There are no hidden costs or subscriptions, and we also give you the sewing pattern worth over $290 free of charge. 

All you need are the materials (fabrics, zippers, yarn). To ensure you’re fully equipped, we’ll send you a complete list of materials via e-mail immediately after registration.

Worry not, there’s probably a simple solution for this:

1 Please make sure that the email didn’t accidentally slip into your spam folder. Lest that happens, add the sender email (mail@tailor-academy.com) as a contact.

2 If you have participated in our trial course or a similar offer of Tailor Academy with your e-mail address, you will not be able to register again. Please check your inbox for the emails or shoot us a message.

3  If you’re already registered for the masterclass of the Tailor Academy, you’ll find the skirt pattern and instructions in the bonus material section of the course page.

A lack of professional equipment shouldn’t stop you from getting started. A small household sewing machine, iron, ironing board, scissors, a ruler, tailor’s chalk, needles, and threads in various colours are sufficient for the start.

You’ll receive all the course materials via email.

Right after registering, you will receive the materials list, sewing tips, and a pre-exercise. 

On the second day you will get a guide for the bow and another expert tip. 

Finally, on day three, you’ll sew the professional skirt following step-by-step video instructions.

You will be amazed at how easy it is to create an amazing masterpiece by yourself!

While the units progress at a fast pace, the course is structured in such a way that no prior knowledge is required from the beginning.

Both the master class and the trial course are designed for any experience level: 

1. People with previous sewing experience who have either learned how to sew by themselves or, e.g., using YouTube videos and now want to learn the craft properly from scratch from an master of the trade and experienced teacher.

2. People who are starting from scratch, are enthusiastic about tailoring, and want to learn it right from the start like they would through an apprenticeship at a real life tailor shop.

3. Tailoring professionals who would like to learn a thing or two from an established colleague.

A household machine is perfectly sufficient for the start of the course. It’s also no problem if you don’t own a machine or studio equipment before starting the course because master tailor Stefan Wimmer explains exactly what you will need in an intro video on how to set up the perfect workstation.

The most important prerequisites are your enthusiasm, love for the craft, and the will to learn.

The trial course is a separate unit that we offer as an introduction. Content and structure are the same as in the master class so you can get a good feeling for what to expect. 

In the masterclass, you’ll have permanent access to the 52 course units plus bonus content via our online portal. There, you will unlock one new unit every 14 days, including all the information, patterns, and tips and tricks from our master tailors.

Thanks to this hands-on approach, you’ll see stunning and fast learning successes on your way to professional craftsmanship. At the same time, you’ll have an extensive library of expert tailoring knowledge and sewing patterns in all sizes permanently at your disposal.
