Whether you're a beginner, intermediate, or advanced sewer, our sewing, tailoring, and
pattern making classes are open to all skill levels. No prior experience in sewing or
pattern making is required!

Join us for an enriching opportunity to learn and expand your knowledge of specialized
sewing techniques from an industry expert. This hands-on, intensive course is designed to
help beginners, intermediate sewers, and experienced individuals alike enhance their
sewing skills, learn pattern making, and progress to the next level.

Discover the secret techniques used by renowned European and domestic designers in
garment construction, fitting, pressing, and much more. Say goodbye to homemade-looking
clothing and learn how to create professional-grade garments.

In this course, you will master the use of a tailor's quarter-size square and learn to draft
quarter-scale patterns like a pro. We will teach you the step-by-step formula to create skirt
patterns from scratch, suitable for ready-to-wear and custom clothing. Advanced
classes will cover additional pattern types.

Stop wasting time and money on commercial patterns. Let us empower you to create your
own unique designs and build a clothing line that perfectly fits and flatters your body.
You will also learn about Product and Development, a valuable process that helps designers
refine and finalize their patterns. Our pattern drafting formulas are utilized
by top European and domestic designers.

The journey begins with drafting quarter-scale patterns and progresses to full-scale
patterns in subsequent classes, culminating in the creation of a sample garment. This
sample garment serves as a test to validate the accuracy of your pattern
once it's made in full scale.
