Todd has so much knowledge to share and he doesn’t in such a clear and inspirational way. You walk away feeling like you can sew, even if you’re a beginner!

I have a client that wanted to make her own wedding dress. She had a design in mind. I was able to help her with the pattern making work step by step. She able to do most of the pattern work herself with my instructions. We went to LA together to shop for fabric. I suggested what fabric would work best for her design and how much fabric to buy. I instructed her on how to match fabric pattern with the dress pattern to cut out the dress out, and how to sew it together. She is doing most of the sewing. The will be ready by the end of july. I will post pics of the progress.
