Lingerie Design & Pattern Making
Personalised one-on-one lessons
Lingerie and corsetry are very specialised skills and it’s not easy to learn them on your own. I know first-hand how frustrating it is to scour the Internet in search of more details, only to find the same basic information repeated over and over. That’s why I’m offering these online lessons, where I put all my knowledge at your fingertips!
How it works
The lessons are held via Zoom or Meet, at a time that works for both of us. The lesson plan is completely customizable, but I’ve added below some suggested topics to get started. The order and content of the lessons can be mixed and matched as you like, though I can make recommendations based on your needs and previous knowledge.
I’ve been teaching lingerie making courses both online and in-person for the past five years, and I can honestly say that I’ve loved every minute of it. I’m immensely proud of my students and I always feel so honoured to have been a part of their learning journey!

Send me an email or book an introductory call with me so we can speak more about the lessons, the schedule and the different payment options. I can’t wait to start learning together!
