It took a while, but now the moment has come: the first short course of moulage is available ONLINE.
Blueprint for Unique Designs
And I am so excited! Why? Because the technique of moulage has meant a lot to me in developing my own couture. And I like the fact that I can now share this experience with you online as well!
Because, you know, whether you use moulage as THE way you make patterns, or as an EXTRA possibility, in both cases you will feel more confident in making and shaping your fashion ideas.
From now on we are going to redesign the concept of online courses. You follow the course more or less in a group at the same time. This gives you the opportunity to interact with other students even more.
If you think: this is really something for me, click here!
But for those who wonder: ‘What is moulage?’ here’s a video I recently made on the subject of MOULAGE:
In this video the most important advantages of learning how to drape are mentioned. I’ll list them here for you. Moulage (or draping):
- is relatively easy to learn
- does justice to each person’s unique body shape
- gives room for new creative solutions
- results in more organic patterns, with a natural flow
- makes it possible to see the result before you work out your design in the real fabric

Oh yes, and don’t let anything stop you. You really don’t need much to get started with this technique.

That’s it! Join us! It will open a world of possibilities for you.
During this online course we make a pattern of a corset. Great if you want to make a nice top for someone!

What other say
‘The two videos were very clear and instructive. No problem to understand the principles of the Technik. You motivate to be creative and try something new. I would have loved to try the moulage technique right away, but I had no dress form and no model. I liked your quick answers to questions and it was lovely to see the work of the others.’- Bettina
‘Followed the short corset draping course. Totally loved it. The two videos were very helpful and the live q en a was fun and well explained. Would love to do another online course!’- Linda Isbrucker
’I recommend the short courses online. As I live in Portugal, now I have the privilege and opportunity to have Saskia teaching me!’- Graça Paquete
‘Before I applied to Blueprint for Unique Designs I was studying fashion design part time. We did not learn this technique, so I had only seen photos online. The course was so informative and interesting and opened up a whole new way of fitting and designing. Most significant for me has been the opportunity to enroll to start finding out how moulage works and how it opens up a whole new way of designing. I would recommend this course to anyone who is interested in learning moulage for the first time. It opens up such a personal view of designing and making a garment. Moulage is for me and I want to keep learning more advanced techniques.’- Allison Walker
‘Saskia always has such a warm smile. You can tell she really cares about her students and teaching and inspiring us with our designs! I have always wanted to learn how to make a corset, so having that as the Moulage class topic was a bonus! Course materials and step-by-step instructions are explained really clearly. The follow-up Q&A was particularly helpful as a lot of questions I had (after watching Part 1 and Part 2) were cleared up. The session also delve deeper into the corset making tips and techniques.’-Connie Choo
The program of workshops, master classes and courses at Dutch Couture Academy is aimed at (upcoming) professionals in the fashion industry who are looking for an opportunity to specialise in couture techniques. Also enthusiastic amateurs are very welcome! In the courses a balance is sought between technique and inspiration, between knowledge and skills and artistic expressiveness. Discovering one’s own handwriting is seen as crucial in the distinctive craftsmanship of each student.
