Expert High-End Couture Draper, Patternmaker & Seamstress. Bring your original designs to life by learning traditional couture techniques.

About the lesson

By infusing traditional couture techniques with a modern sensibility, you can bring your garment design projects to life by using techniques that are (sadly) dying off due to mass production. With over 40 years of work under my belt in the Fashion Development and Costuming industries, I can teach you how to create your designs in a way that displays a distinctive old-school flair that will get your work noticed by professionals!
