Don't know of any but in searching for other courses I have had luck using the terms "short courses." Open University would seem the natural place to start looking but loads of schools are now offering online courses. Simply try different ways of searching.

I'm assuming you want a short or part time course instead of a degree programme?

Good luck, let us know if you find one.

I think city & guilds might do a pattern cutting course, which you might be able to get distance learning?

Otherwise TextileArts.net has a list of on-line courses - nothing specific to dressmaking, but might be of interest to you.  http://www.textilearts.net/directory/study_and_research/distance_learning

Depending on where you live a local college might do an evening class starting in the autumn?

Good luck & I hope you find the course you are looking for!

you can also do home/online courses, depending on what you want to learn (and your internet access) these can be better than home learning.    http://sewing.patternreview.com has been recommended to me as quite good, although I haven't tried it personally!
