The classes of Le Grand Chic School of pattern drafting clarified my understanding of flat paper patterns in general and the individual fit of a person specifically . I use this information not only in designing a garment but understanding how the individual likes to wear their chosen style. I have taken the knowledge that I acquired over all the classes, into my creative life of sewing couture garments and to designing Knitwear. At this time I am using the skills learned to develop my unique one of a kind garments. Judith

I love what I do, creating garments that fit the body with comfort and allow movement. I believe garments should be timeless, made from quality fabrics that will last a a good long time. It is my mission to bring back elegance and style in a sustainable manner by teaching people how to bring their vision to life in this simple to understand method of pattern making and garment construction.
