Tired of paying for alterations? Interested in giving your wardrobe a DIY makeover? Whatever your needs, my classes cater to your goals.

I learned to sew in a high school Costume Design class when I was 15 and I haven't stopped since. In 2013, I received a Bachelor's Degree in Fashion Design after which I started a cottage business making women's clothing and accessories.

My skills are specific to pattern-making, machine sewing, hand sewing, basic alterations, and how to start a fashion business.

I believe that with a strong sewing foundation you will find endless capabilities.

My classes are offered to children to adults, all ages welcome! I look forward to hearing about your sewing goals!

About Diana B.

Hello! My name's Diana, I'm a Miami native with a passion for sewing and design. As a kid I spent most of my playtime with friends playing dress up, raiding their closets and constantly coordinating mine. I love clothes, fabrics and textures.

When I started sewing at 15, nothing beat the rush and sense of accomplishment I got from creating my own things. So I never stopped.

Today, I have a regular job in the hospitality industry but I've not given up on my dreams. I love teaching because I get to pass along that same sense of accomplishment I continue to crave from creating – plus it keeps my skill sets fresh. So thank you and I look forward to sharing with you!
