BA (Hons) Fashion Design & Technology Graduate offering Pattern and Construction lessons

Teaching students aged 15+ fundamental basics to free hand pattern drafting in the fashion industry.

Pattern-cutting is the essential skill of all designers in bringing a design to life from a 2D perspective to a 3D wearable garment.

Block patterns are used for standardised sizing, but for a full understanding of how patterns work, I will be teaching the basics in drafting and developing a basic skirt pattern, which can then be used for your own designs.

My lessons would be a vast advantage to students finishing their GCSE's or A-level's Textile who wish to continue further on to Fashion at foundation/university, as it will provide you with a insightful head start on a crucial aspect of all Fashion courses.

However, these skills are accessible to everyone from all professional backgrounds, so if you'd like to learn about the creation of garments from scratch, these lessons will be as easily enjoyable.

Lessons will be easy-going, very much working at your own pace. If there is something you'd like to make, I can provide tailored lessons to work towards your goal.

Online Sewing, Pattern Making and Garment Construction Lessons.
Want to learn how to make your own clothes? Look no further. Having done courses in sewing, pattern making, and garment construction at ESMOD Paris as well as with my own personal experiences over the previous years, I am truly passionate about sewing and sharing my knowledge and experiences with others. My style of teaching is quite flexible and is dependent on the needs or requests of the student. I'm happy to teach students who are eager to know more about the world of fashion, sewing, and pattern making from a beginner to a more intermediate level. I am also excited to help students bring their design sketches to life and take practical steps to achieve that goal as well as helping students that just want to learn everything from scratch without any specific design. Sewing and pattern making go hand in hand; so, I will teach them together. As a teacher, I believe in being patient and accommodating with my student. I want them to be able to achieve their goals. After taking my classes, I want all my students to be comfortable with making and sewing their own patterns and designs. Please feel free to send me a message of your goals and expectations for this course and I would be happy to assist you to see how we can get there together.
