Level Up your Pattern Making Skills

As we embrace the start of another year, if you have a dream of where you want your life to be in 2023, make it a reality and turn your creative passion into a job you love.

Visually break down a photo of a style to create a draft, pattern, and a toile using digital women's block patterns inside the Online Courses - Design Challenge Style Files.

Lessons are fully searchable, navigate to chapters, you can search not only the video titles but also the words that are spoken in a video lesson and be taken to the exact spot in the video in our online fashion courses.

The online courses are broken down into a proven framework with resources and my 30 + years of experience as a pattern maker and fashion lecturer. Looking back I was lucky I got to work with some incredible designers in couture, luxury, high-end and high-street as well as teaching.

I can’t really express how excited we are about launch of the Design Challenge Style Files - It's just the beginning...
