Here's what students are saying...
"Hi Alexandra, I am from the US, I studied pattern making in two universities, back in the 60’s before getting my degree in fashion design. Never have I seen real pattern drafting like this! None of the text books today even come close. I can’t believe how close my first draft was to being perfect right out of the chute! My body is far from perfect, but understanding my problems made it a breeze to make only a few simple adjustments to the first draft."
"Thank you Alexandra, a friend of mine is a tutor at a Fashion Design School, she offered to help me create a sloper, as I am not one to intrude on someone's generosity, I purchased your course to make a start and learn the necessary skills I need to understand the process. I have completed my first muslin and my friend has helped me get the perfect fit. She said that if her students could produce what I did she would be really happy - I got an A+! Thanks again Alexandra for this easy to follow online course, please consider this student of yours as an A+ student because of your teaching style. Can't wait to move onto the sleeves and then start implementing all of the skills from your other lessons available on your channel."
"Hi I just want to thank Alexandra, publicly, for all the help she gives us on these courses. Every time I have requested help, she has answered within hours. You don’t have to wait for days to be able to proceed with your work. This is the second online course I have taken with her & both are well worth the money. Unless you have the perfect , slim, B cup figure buying a pattern & expecting it to fit perfectly is unrealistic especially if you have a mature figure. It doesn’t matter how much time you spend sewing the garment up , it’s very disappointing when the finished product doesn’t fit... been there! I would highly recommend any of her courses."
