When you first join, you will spend the first three months learning the foundation principles; this is a jammed-packed three months with over 12 courses to prepare you for the garment-specific drafting, fitting, and construction courses that will follow monthly.
The courses are dripped during the month to allow you to digest the instruction in small chunks. Dripping the content will avoid you getting overwhelmed and instead allow you time to work at your pace.
Every two weeks after your first three months, you will receive a new course in your dashboard. The first course in the month will be a new modern and stylish garment drafted from start to finish.
The second course for the month will be focused on either fitting fixes and adjustments or design hacks to help you use the pattern in multiple ways.
The third bonus course for the month will teach you the order of construction, so you know exactly how to put together and sew your newly drafted pattern with a start to finish sewing construction video from Mimi G and Norris Ford.
Your monthly membership will allow you 24/7 access so you can work at your pace, start, stop and resume or rewatch the courses as often as needed.
