Jane’s own brand of inclusive and supportive tuition has launched as many wardrobe re-vamps as it has professional sewing careers!

“Having taught non-vocational dressmaking, City & Guilds Fashion and Pattern Cutting, BTech Fashion, BA (hons) Fashion for many years, I grew increasingly concerned about the demise of formal dressmaking education particularly for adult learners. In 2005 I decided to something about this and set up as an independent dressmaking teacher offering tuition in a friendly, flexible, affordable and inclusive format. I am so lucky to do something I love working with the most wonderful students. Whatever their starting point, the thrill is seeing the development of skills and confidence and sewers wearing their garments with stylish individuality” Jane explained.
