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 time playing dress up, raiding friends' 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 felt from creating my own things. So I never stopped.

Today, I host fashion birthday parties, design workshops and sewing lessons. 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!

This is my first lesson. Diana was very kind and patient. And good at giving instructions. Which was very important since our lessons are online.
