Our Story

I am a pattern maker who can sew. I specialised in made-to- measure garments.

I make the pattern on CAD and can fit them to personal measurements.

I teach pattern making and make video tutorial on my youtube channel. The videos are originally made to complement the classes and give my students revision material. If we can't fix, we can duplicate it.
