Students will take a journey into the wonderful world of fashion!

In these self-directed courses they will learn how to draft patterns, sew the mock-ups but most importantly how to fit the body at their own pace.

"The Le Grand Chic pattern drafting method transformed the way I draft patterns! It’s very simple and easy to now get perfect fitting garments! After learning this method and testing it out I felt confident to branch out and now I work with clients in creating patterns and sample garments for their brands and do custom work. I am so happy I decided to take classes with Maria!"

"This course has reignited an enjoyment in making my own clothes that I had when I was younger. It has also given me the confidence to look at a garment and know that I can make it for myself and make it better because it will be a custom fit, especially made for me."
