About The Academy of Cutting and Tailoring in Stockholm

At The Academy of Cutting and Tailoring we are driven by the joy that it is to teach the noble craft - the design, the sewing and the construction. We want to develop, preserve and pass on our craftsmanship all while giving you the proper tools and opportunities to evolve creatively and freely.

Our teachers are all equipped with proper professional experience and experience from the business of pattern construction, sewing and design. We are also tied to designers, fashion illustrators, trend- and color consultants that regularly provide guest lectures.

This in combination with our long experience, our own uniquely developed system for pattern construction, and through our contacts in the field of fashion, we know that our educations and courses live up to the high standards that both ourselves, the industry and colleges demand.

The Academy of Cutting and Tailoring in Stockholm was founded in 1913 and through the years it has developed into one of the leading schools in pattern construction, sewing, tailoring and design.
