Basic elements of how to add in a drape feature. Great individualised workshop. Anita loves to share her skills and knowledge.

If you have patternmaking experience, this is a wonderful class to extend your skills. I've been dreaming of dresses ever since.

Anita was very patient and helpful, her knowledge was amazing and she was able to teach on a very practical level. She was able to give me industry contacts so I can buy items that only the "industry" know about. This was a most enjoyable day of learning and I was able to go home a apply what I have learned. I would happily recommend the Studio to any aspiring sewing or pattern-marker.
