I don't know how to use a sewing machine.

All sewing machines are different but the standard functions remain the same. We have included our Sewing machine crash course completely for free with every course.
We would suggest you read the instruction manual for your own machine, possibly also watching specific online tutorials to assist with your particular brand. 

How long is the access to the courses? Do they expire?

No! Our courses once purchased are your for life. We understand that everyone has a different way and speed of learning and we don't want to put a time limit pressure on you.

How many times can I watch the videos?

As many as you wish! No limits on our sewing classes! Our goal is to teach you dressmaking free of stress.

Do I need to buy patterns too?

No ready made patterns required! This is a fashion design course which breaks the mystique that you require overly complicated patterns – you don’t! Instead we will teach you how to draft your own patterns from scratch: for your measurements!

What if we get stuck? Is there any help we can get?

We have taken every effort to deliver information clearly and we do recommend that you take the course step by step to build this design thinking. If you still have questions left after watching all the video lessons on a specific garment or technique, please send us a message via the platform and we'll try to help you out! 

Patterns seem complicated. What if I don't know anything about them?

Patterns don’t have to be complicated and they are not! Our courses are easy to follow and we break it down to show how simple it really is.
