Welcome to The Fashion School in Canberra's inner south suburb of Yarralumla, now celebrating its 17th year!
Working from a modern, fully-equipped atelier, I offer private lessons in sewing and pattern-making, as well as a custom fitting bodice pattern service.
Inspired by elegant French and Italian fashion and trained at New York's Fashion Institute of Technology, I love helping students to create gorgeous, perfectly-fitting women's clothes.
With a focus on fit, I work with beginners starting their sewing journey as well as more advanced students who want to improve their skills and learn more specialised techniques. All classes are for students 16 years and older. Find out more about me and my approach here.
Custom bodice and trouser pattern service
For women who have sewing experience but have difficulty in finding a well fitting pattern, I create a custom fitting bodice or trouser pattern made precisely to their measurements which they can overlay on a commercial pattern or use to draft a variety of garments. This has proved to be a highly cost-effective alternative to ongoing private classes.

Let's create. Let's sew!
