I am a fashion designer/instructor and entrepreneur of 30 years, I do my best to combine my passion for clothing and accessories with a classroom environment, where I guide students in topics such as sewing, patterns, and trends in fashion. Having prior industry experience and a professional portfolio, I am well equipped to share my expertise of fashion with anyone who is interested in learning the ropes. I hold 2 degrees in fashion design, and I also worked under various titles both in NYC and south Florida in the fashion industry before I branched out on my own with my own label Lordana. I also have a 30 year + fashion industry experience in sewing, designing, technical drawing, CAD, and pattern making. 12 years from my 30+ experience were spent at The Art Institute of Fort lauderdale where I taught fashion and merchandising courses to college level students. I have also been teaching sewing and pattern making classes to students from elementary to college levels. If fashion is you dream, don't be afraid to get on board of my ship. I promise, your ride will be enjoyable and fulfilling.

You’ve come to the right place if you want to learn how to sew or enhance your sewing skills. Do you need help in real time? I provide sewing lessons for you online. Level 1 Start: For someone new to Sewing, who has never sewn before nor used a sewing machine, your first lesson will be learning your sewing machine. Threading, bobbin, stitches, functions. You will also learn how to sew on scrap fabric. One hour. Level 2 Start: A sewing beginner, someone who has sewn before but not much. If you already possess the skills and level one, then you start at level two. In this session you will learn to make a pillowcase or a tote bag. You will get more comfortable with the machine, controlling the speed, stitching within a seam allowance, and stitching a straight line. This could take 1 to 2 sewing hours. Level 3 Start: Student possesses the abilities and skills in level one and two. At level three, you have already sewn something basic like a pillow, pillowcase or tote bag. At this level I allow you to choose your pattern for what you’d like to make. Pattern choice will be an "easy to sew" pattern of something that you like to make. Depending on the pattern, this could take 2 to 4 sewing sessions. Level four. You’re really sewing now! This is where you will choose a more difficult pattern with something specific that you’d like to learn. It will take 2 to 5 sewing sessions depending on pattern difficulty.
