Become in control of what you choose to make, get rid of all fitting frustrations, and become a better dressmaker

Join the Direct Construction Method


Discover A New EASY Method of Dressmaking & Create Garments For ANY Body Shape That Fit Like a Glove, WITHOUT Wasting Days/Weeks on Fitting

-- "'I LOVE making dresses, but getting caught in a spin of fitting confusion has sucked the life out of my sewing room."'

I hear this a lot from struggling sewists.

Honestly, any sane person would feel that way.

To make a simple, decent & wearable dress:

You spend hours/days looking for a pattern
* Tape together & decode the patterns
Then you struggle for days & weeks altering patterns to get a proper fit!

But, what if there was an easier way?

Through my 20+ years of sewing professionally, I built an easy system that anyone can follow & make any dress they want, in any size/shape they want.

I call this system, 'Direct Construction Method', and I'll be teaching it in this Masterclass.

Imagine yourself one year from now.

Dressmaking is now a lot less technical, and a lot more artistic for you.

You see a dress in a magazine or a runway show, and think it would be nice for your silhouette.

Just a few days later, you complete the dress for yourself, with some design modifications matching your taste. No more pattern hunting, no more fitting nightmares. 

Would you rather keep doing what you're doing, get incrementally better at your craft, but keep aspiring to higher levels?

Instead, I can save you 5-10 years of hard work, by revealing you my shortcut --simple dressmaking system that just plain works.

If you're ready to become in control of what you choose to make, get rid of all fitting frustrations, and become a better dressmaker, sign up today & secure your spot!

Exclusive Dressmaking Project Courses

After you master the foundations, I know you'll want to take your skills up by another level, and tackle even more complicated gowns.
Because of this, I decided to add a few special "next-level" bonuses to the course.

Blush Bridal Gown Course   ($297 Value)

When you sign up to the Masterclass, you'll get my 'Blush Bridal Gown' course as bonus.

It's an in-depth course that starts with how I designed the gown with tulles, and goes into detail explaining the construction, patternmaking, and sewing process.

Along with that course, I'll record a special session on creating a bridal corset. This will add on top of the Blush Bridal Gown course, so you can choose to construct with or without a corset.

It will be a great module on corset-construction under your dresses & gowns.

Vionnet-Inspired Bias Gown   ($297 Value)

Second bonus, and the one I'm most excited about, is a full course on how to create my Madeleine Vionnet inspired gown

It is a gown that is draped fully on bias cut pieces.

It is one of my favorite dresses, also loved by my customers.
