My second class with them and I was once more very satisfied. We have been through a lot in 3 hours from taking your measurements to drawing and cutting your own skirt pattern. We learnt how to design patterns for several different style of skirts. Although I won't probably feel confident to design an advanced skirt on my own I was really interrested to learn about how skirts are being designed. We were a small group of 4, which was a good number too.

Pattern cutting class was really good, I learnt a lot and the teacher was great. The group was quite small so he could spend some time with each of us. I recommend!

Really interesting, very difficult process made easy by straightforward instructions and guidance. Clear and fully engaging. I know enough to adapt my block pattern. Thank you.
