Meet Christeen Jacobs
This Pattern Making Online Sewing Course is developed by and features Christeen Jacobs, an industry expert with over 30 years of experience in the bridal and evening wear field.
Christeen grew up watching her mother, who was a gifted seamstress, to sew and bead beautiful gowns. “Sewing is an art”, she would tell her, “every seam must be perfect. The inside of the garment should look as good as the outside”.
Christeen loved the way her mother could turn a simple picture into a work of art. She followed in her mother’s footsteps, and went on to run her own made-to-measure Bridal and Evening wear business in Sydney for many years. She even won Gown of the Year three years running for her handmade creations.
But her real passion lies in teaching others how to create and sew their own garments, as well as giving them the freedom to wear what they want by helping them to design their own patterns.
