The goal of the school EFSA is for the student to be able to understand the sequence that exists between the design, the pattern and their direct application to the fabric (sewing).

To exercise the perception of the body shape in terms of silhouette and proportion. To understand how its dimensions are transferred to the pattern.

Through continuous construction and practice on paper and their application to fabrics, the student is led to a deeper understanding of the behaviour of fabrics, while at the same time becoming familiar with the tools needed in order to create a garment (sewing machine, cutter, iron, ironing machine and etc).

The creative understanding of the drawing, the analogies and the translation of the drawing into a pattern is done through the experiential learning system, where the practical application leads the student from learning to expertise.
