Understand free hand cutting, embrace pattern drafting

Are you struggling to consistently sew well-fitting clothes?
Yesterday she loved what we made; but today, the fit is… off
You know sewing is not rocket science, but yet….

I know how you feel. I have been there before.
Where …because you want to achieve consistency, you spend so much time on a garment, in 
comparison to the returns on the job.

I knew it is not rocket science, but the information I had available was limited.
Then, I discovered pattern drafting. It first looked like what I was used to.
But I kept researching, and found out the fundamentals.

We have used the process over, and over again, achieving consistency in our result.

We have taught over 50 Students on what the process entails.

We have been able to revise our curriculum time and time again; enabling us grows a novice to an expert in a short time frame.

We have created a curriculum that works.
Arriving at this point wasn’t a fun one. It involved a lot of trial and error, lots of sleepless nights, and asking questions, and money wasted as part of the learning process, and from many failures.


Why do you need this?
You need any or all of our courses, if above is your story.

You will be taught, and your progress will be monitored from sewing straight lines, to cutting complex  well-fitting garments. 

With our understanding on the difficulty level of various garment project, we will lead you by the hand, through different stages; exposing you to increasing levels of difficult project without overwhelming you; building on previously understood concepts.

Learning will be a walk in the park, embracing both theoretical concepts and hands-on activities…In a timely manner.

It is actually not rocket science
we have mastered it, and also others whom have passed through our course.
You too, can!

Ajose  Femi
The training was highly informative and effective, very conducive environment I must say. 

The best part of the training for me was creating new designs and the most striking thing I learnt was how to make calculations to create a block.

This training has greatly influenced me to start my own fashion brand and I can highly recommend OOTI anywhere. I believe it’s a building block to excel at anything Fashion!

As a starter, I was thinking that I won’t be able to learn sewing without prior experience at handling the sewing machine but am glad I now know how to handle the machine. 

Making the six piece skirt was the highlight of my training. I learnt a whole lot. And apart from fashion design, I learnt some soft skills from my teacher Ms. Osas. She’s easy-going and love to see people grow.

All the staffs of OOTI are lovely and accommodating. I’m glad I didn’t miss this training for anything.

Tunde Shoremekun
I enjoyed every part of the training. From the step by step training process, to the extensive handouts, to the patient and ever motivating tutors, to the supportive fellow trainees. It was an amazing experience. 

My love and passion for pattern drafting was harnessed in the training and much more than designs, I learnt that anything is possible to be made as long as you have a clear vision of what you want.

This training has given me the bedrock knowledge on pattern drafting and garment construction and helped me secure jobs in top fashion houses in Nigeria. I can recommend OOTI 100%.

Lawal Oluwaseun
My training at OOTI was fabulous. Great tutors. Conducive environment. Highly informative. 

The highlight of my training was the first gown I sewed and the most  fascinating thing I learnt was pattern drafting and sewing. 

This training has greatly benefited me because I can now cut and sew on my own. OOTI has my 5 star!
