New! Our follow-up pattern drawing course! With this course you will go more in depth. And.. because you spend so much time in the first course in creating your perfect fitted basic patterns, it is nice to create something you can really use. Use your basic patterns and learn to adjust them to create the patterns of your design or wishes.

Capsule Wardrobe
In this course we want to create the patterns which you can use to create the perfect small wardrobe. In a minimalistic wardrobe like this, you need the pieces that bring you most joy and offer the best fit for you body. If the fit and style fits you as a person really well, you can still use these patterns for years. You can always re-make them again in a new fabric!
