Online Classes

Our live online classes are dedicated to the drafting of bespoke cutting patterns from scratch. Based on actual body measurements, not pre-fabricated blocks, they teach the art of cutting for the individual – yourself or a customer. Measurements are in the metric system.

The methodology is repeatable with individual measurements and students will be able to create their own patterns using the literature we provide with the class. See what US-based fashion historian Julie Eibler and sewing blogger Duane MacLeod said about their experience as participants.

We have linked up with Eventbrite, making booking  and payment simple and secure. Where classes are organised over several dates, participants will receive event links for subsequent dates following booking the first date. Find current dates below.
