What students say about the Pattern making classes

I have just completed the pattern making course with Sew n Sew Sewing School.

I absolutely loved doing this course, I now have a pattern to fit my size perfectly.I now do not have to buy anymore commercial patterns.

A big thank you to Christeen she has been wonderful helping someone that did not have a lot of sewing experience.

I feel that this course has bought out the creative side in me and iIhighly recommend this course.

Thanks Kerry Adler

Hi Christeen I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the Pattern creation course.  After years of sewing it is great to have a pattern that actually fits me.

I have already started to design my new summer wardrobe now that I can manipulate patterns.  Can’t wait to now start making exactly what I want to wear.

Thank you for the very productive and enjoyable classes.

Christeen’s pattern making course was an incredibly valuable.

I learnt all the different ways to make and alter a design.  I now feel confident to take what ever I have learnt from Christeen and apply it to create my very own personalised designs at home.

As someone who likes to take sewing inspiration from vintage styles I look forward to being able to look at images from the past and figure out how to recreate these for myself without having to buy expensive paper patterns.

I highly recommend this course.
