Sewing lessons: Fashion student and passionate for 8 years gives sewing lessons of all levels

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
My name is Marie, I am 22 years old and come from Paris.
I have been living in Amsterdam for almost 3 years now for my studies.
I am in the fashion department at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, an art school.
I started sewing at 14 and develop this passion every day.
I am also very interested in ethical and sustainable fashion, I mainly use second-hand fabrics or that are given to me, such as sheets, tablecloths or curtains ...

I love to pass on my passion for sewing and it is with pleasure that I would teach you the basics or help you with your projects of all levels such as your next summer outfits, a coat, a pencil case, your lingerie, cushions etc .. :)

I can come to your place for lessons if you have a machine and at least some material (fabric, pins ...) or you can come to my place.

Do not hesitate to contact me for further information!

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.

Develop a unique fashion design vision with Central Saint Martins alumna
Firstly we will go through a consultation to define your individual requirements so I can tailor the sessions specifically to you. Previous work/a portfolio is great to see, if you’re a beginner we can discuss what you’d like to learn and achieve. Whilst getting to know one another I will also provide some resources for us to discuss so I can see how your brain interprets 3D relationships. Following this, I will create a plan of action for us to follow to help you achieve your goal. I am very honest with my approach, and will help you turn your weaknesses into strengths, as well as encouraging you to develop your own unique design style, brand & process (and the confidence to execute!). I will encourage you to think outside the box & realise potential routes to your goal you hadn’t previously considered. I can help with: • Creating a vision and portfolio that demonstrates your designer DNA. • Creating a portfolio for application to a Fashion Degree. • Help collecting the right ingredients & contacts to start a fashion label. • Developing original textiles. • How to create a pattern, and how to grade it. • How to use a sewing machine, and how to sew different types of seams, collars, cuffs, pockets, hems, sleeves, waistbands, trousers & fastenings. I provide 24 hour support. Any questions you have about working in the industry or studying a Fashion degree I am more than happy to help with.

Learn Simple Decorative Stitches and Other DIY Sewing Projects
As a designer and dressmaker I create garments, satin hair bonnets, pillowcases and much more. I strongly believe in persons gaining the knowledge in being able to create their own articles of clothing or even smaller sewing projects as hobby. In this class you will learn the basics of sewing, how to do decorative stitches that can be used to add flair to a blouse, pillowcase and so much more. These classes are 30 minute long classes and if you have never sewn before that it quite alright. You will leave with the ability to.
