Description

The course consists of more than 130 video lessons with instructions and assignments for home work, and as new technologies emerge, we make new lessons and add them to the "Full Course".

Attention!

Lessons will be available on schedule: four next lessons will be available every new day.

This means that one month is not enough to complete all the assignments of the course, but at the same time in the first month you will get access to most of the lessons that carry information about the technologies that we use for the production of leotards for rhythmic gymnastics.

If you liked our course, then you can extend access to it for 1 day, 1 week and 1 month.

After paying the fifth month of access, you can get unlimited access to the course, for this write a letter to the administrator.

You can also get unlimited access by making an appropriate surcharge, taking into account all your previous payments

A certificate of completion of the course is issued subject to the completion of all the tasks of the course and does not depend on how long you completed them, two months or a whole year. The main thing is to do everything beautifully, neatly and correctly.

  • liner;
  • grid paper, preferably in a roll;
  • tracing paper, preferably in a roll;
  • a set of coloured markers, medium thickness;
  • scissors;
  • a possibility to print out additional materials on an A4 paper.

Sewing equipment:

  • a sewing machine to work with lightweight delicate fabrics (required stitches: straight stitch, zigzag, 3 step zigzag, stretch zigzag or overlock stitch). It is possible to use cheap sewing machines, but our workshops gives preferences to the following brands: Brother Innovis 450 (and later models, it is a good domestic machine with an easy interface, doesn’t require adjustments, it proves to be a good machine that is why we prefer buying this particular model), Pfaff Select series, models 2.2., 3.2, 4.2 (doesn’t matter which model it is, we haven’t noticed difference in their execution. From our experience, all sewing machine have different quality of assembly, besides some have a problem of constant screw loosening during exploitation thus a constant maintenance is required, Bernina 380 (it is a good sewing machine but requires a qualified adjustment service. we failed to find a stitch which wouldn’t gather an applique). Industrial sewing machines are not used in our workshop.
  • a 4 thread serger. At the moment we think the best sergers are Bernina 880DL (unfortunately it is discontinued already), its substitute is Juke 850 (we didn’t buy this serger, only were recommended it). You can use solely a sewing machine but it would be hard to get a professional finish quality.
  • a steam iron, ironing cloth protector cover is unnecessary, the more holes the better and they should be evenly distributed.

Fabrics and accessories for sewing:

  • a measuring tape;
  • a needle pad;
  • sewing needles;
  • pins;
  • heat-resistant pins;
  • sharp embroidery scissors for appliques 11-14 cm in size (manicure scissors will not be suitable, we buy scissors PRYM with pink and purple handles, 11.5 cm or 14 cm in size; or scissors Aurora AU-405, 11 cm);

  • flesh skin mesh (approximately 0.5 meter, we buy it from Chersa sport, article 0719, colour 232);
  • white mesh (0.3 m), if you can find a fluorescent pink and red mesh, otherwise we can still use the white mesh;
  • biflex fluorescent yellow, fluorescent pink, white, pale pink, pale blue, light green (0.2 m each – we need small pieces but usually 0.2 m is the minimum you can buy in a shop, you can change colours);
  • stretch velvet blue, purple, fluorescent green (0.2 m each, you can choose colours, you can substitute velvet for biflex if it is hard to find);

  • acrylic paints Javana the whole fluorescent range, plus navy blue, dark purple and turquoise;
  • Nerchau glitter liner, colours silver, gold, red, green, blue (a glitter liner is not essential, but it creates a beautiful effect, glitter liners by other manufacturers are worse in quality);
