Hi I'm Maria Calautti

Master Tailor, Instructor, Pattern Maker, Alterations Specialist, Founder of Le Grand Chic Italia in Canada

My passion is to help others find their inner designer/pattern maker/tailor. I have been teaching pattern drafting and sewing for the past 15 years with great success both in live and virtual classes currently from my home, previously from a College in Barrie, Ontario. 

I have also been working for manufacturing everything from creating lines of clothing for smaller start-ups, single pieces for stores to streamlining a two-piece sleeve for an international ladies’ equestrian wear company called Frantisi whose client base is worldwide. This is in addition to bespoke tailoring for men and women creating some very unique pieces that fit impeccably. 

Along the way I have learned many tricks of the trade plus discovered a few tricks of my own on what to look for and how to properly fit garments to the body. This is what I hope to impart through this course to students, in other words demystify fitting especially pants!

"The classes of Le Grand Chic 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

The basic pants block - front and back.


This is where ALL pants start, the basic block front and back, from there you can create any style you desire using personal measurements. No more fitting rooms, no more shopping, no more disappointment!


"The Le Grand Chic Pattern Drafting/Sewing courses at Georgian College gave me the skills and confidence necessary to start my own sewing business. Maria listens to her students' questions and works through solutions with her students which creates a fantastic learning environment."

Sharon of Bespoke Originals

After this course this is what you will end up with, really you will, even if you are a beginner and know nothing about drafting or sewing you will understand the easy to follow instructions.


"When I first started the course I was a basic sewer who took one 6 week sewing course and played around at home, and basically only sewed a few simple top patterns and a skirt. After the course I was able to draft increasingly complex clothing and sew them, including tops, skirts, dresses, coats, and a bespoke suit." Linda
