Fitting the body, garment making, teaching advanced techniques to beginners is my passion! I love it when students "get it"! This is why I created to storyboards to use a teaching tool for one of my classes, the students themselves decided they wanted to create a set of their own to have in their reference library, it worked so well that I decided to make it part of the curriculum. The storyboards are very visual and tactile making them an excellent resource to have on hand as a reminder of the various steps involved without any guesswork!

I hope you enjoy this course as much as I enjoyed creating it.
