— Fashion Designer / Pattern Cutter / Sample Maker
I’m a freelance fashion designer and pattern cutter who specialises in corsets and lingerie. I love passing on my skills and inspiring people to develop their own clothing and creativity. Whether it is a basic skirt, accessories or your very own bridal dress. I also help students improve their skills and make their end of year projects. I am extremely patient and will give you tips and advise throughout the course.
I’m also currently developing a gorgeous range of sewing pattern, with easy to follow instructions. So you can continue putting your recently acquired skills into action.
I have studied ‘Fashion, styling and couture’, Shape wear and Leather works in Belgium. I went on to study made to measure lingerie and corsets in the Netherlands and studied corsets and historical sewing techniques in the UK. Having been taught and worked in different countries I learned a vast variety of different sewing techniques and pattern drafting systems from which I have developed my own.
The ability to create something unique will help to build your confidence. Let me show you how to make clothing fit fabulously, revamp your wardrobe and even treat your pet to something new. I run a variety of courses, workshops and sewing groups. If there is anything you’d like to make, just contact me.
