The knowledge ensures every garment you create is a beloved addition to your wardrobe. Imagine a closet filled with items you love and wear with confidence, all while saving you time and money!


Session 1
You’ll learn the theory of proportional design and how it applies to your proportions. You’ll trace your figure to determine personal proportional differences as compared to the industry.


Session 2
You’ll determine the best designs to visually create the look you want for yourself. You’ll identify the functional, structural, and decorative elements of your best designs.

*Skill Level: Advanced Beginner - You have a good handle on the basics and are ready to dip your toe into more challenging waters. You’re still fairly new to sewing from patterns and could use help with how to manipulate the pattern to get a better fit. You want to add some new skills to your repertoire (invisible zippers, setting-in sleeves, sewing with a serger, etc.). Classes generally require homework.
