This is your only chance to get my course, DIGITAL SEWING PATTERNS for Beginners, for $300 off the regular price.


Start creating your own pdf sewing patterns even if you’ve never drafted a pattern digitally before in your life and you’re a complete beginner!

Digital Patternmaking is the process of drafting sewing blocks on the computer (or iPad) that can be further manipulated and graded to create any type of pattern from, and then turning those into pdf sewing patterns that you can print or sell.

You’re ready to bring your creations to life, but you have no idea where to start and don’t want to waste time trying to figure it all out on your own.



If any of these statements have you going, “What the heck is going on, get out of my head!?” then keep reading – you’re in the right place, lovely 🙂

No Prior Experience Required

This will work for you:

Even if you’re not a patternmaker.

Even if you don’t have any experience drafting on the computer.

Even if you haven’t made a digital pattern or sewing pdf before.

Even if you don’t have much time.


Now imagine what it would feel like when you sell your first PDF sewing pattern online!

Picture being able to make an entire month’s salary in 48 hours by running one pattern sale.

What would it feel like to know that you could create a business that sustains you and your family, and allows you to create a career that allows you to make your own hours from home, and anywhere you travel?

Imagine creating your pattern once and being able to sell it for years to come.

Think about how your family and friends will be super impressed and how they’ll brag about your pattern making skills to everyone they know.

But you've heard the stories about patternmaking being hard and you're hesitant. You're asking yourself questions like...

  • What if my designs don’t fit and I don’t know how to fix them?
  • What happens if no one likes my designs?
  • How will I ever be able to draft patterns on my computer?
  • What if I’m horrible at designing and everything turns out wrong?
  • What if I’ve never designed before and don’t have time to go back to college to learn how?
  • How will I know that my designs are done and don’t need anymore fixing?
  • Can I really learn how to draft patterns that people want?
  • Is it even possible to design patterns that people will buy?
  • Can you really earn a full-time income with pdf sewing patterns?

I know there can be a lot of questions and confusion when you’re starting to draft sewing patterns digitally for the first time. If you don’t have a plan to follow, it can be easy to make some critical mistakes, get discouraged and never end up finishing your first pattern. Without guidance and support, it can be tough to make any progress at all!

That’s why I’ve created my step by step course,

Digital Sewing Patterns Bootcamp.



An eight-week, online course where you’ll learn exactly how to draft digitally on the computer and iPad, digitize paper patterns (if you have them), and turn them into PDFs that you can print or sell.

I just watched all the videos available today… and I can’t wait to put what I learned to the test!

Every one of our students is on their own journey. Whether you fly through it in the 8 weeks, or need to take a little longer, that's okay.

Some of our students have finished entire modules in one day, but we recommend setting aside 2-4 hours a week to go through the lessons.

Once you invest in the course, it's waiting for you in your course portal. You're able to access it on your own time and won't lose access to it.


Design Your Own Sewing Patterns

Be able to draft your own sewing patterns! If you already have paper patterns you want to digitize, you're going to be a leap ahead in this program! You'll start by learning how to create digital designs, and then we’ll transfer that one design into many with just a few clicks!

Grade your patterns

Learn how to grade it all in the computer and save yourself hours of work! You can grade your patterns up and down to fit a range of sizes.

Teach Your Kids

Looking for some bonding time? Learn how to design sewing patterns with your kids. You can turn their creations into patterns for clothing, pillows, etc and create a truly customized home for them.

If You’re Ready to Level Up

This will work for you.

You know what brought you here. 

You know the desire in your heart that led you to learn how to draft patterns.

Whether it’s being able to make custom patterns for that family member (or yourself) that is hard to fit, or making a flexible career out of this that lets you choose your own hours.

Let us show you how.


You can keep trying to figure it all out on your own, googling tutorials and watching random YouTube videos hoping to learn how to draft your own patterns eventually.


You could quickly learn how to draft patterns directly in your computer and start creating your own designs to sell confidently in just a few weeks!

We've had complete beginners drafting their first pattern in the second week, much to their surprise.

Think about where you want to be in six months from now. Heck, imagine where you could be just one month from now (with four patterns already made).

Do you have a step-by-step plan to help you get there?

If you're ready to stop messing around with your patterns and want to learn how to draft digitally and market them online, then Digital Sewing Patterns Bootcamp is going to be the online course that changes everything for you.

This is the ONLY course that teaches you how to draft digitally on a Mac, PC and iPad. And you don't need to sign up for some long lengthy design software to do it. The software we teach in the course is available on PC, Mac and iPad, and it's buy it once, use it forever. It's pretty cheap too.

So when you're ready to take your business to the next level you'll be able to draft anywhere on your iPad, even while waiting at the Doctor's office.

No other course teaches you how to draft on all 3 platforms!


I've never drafted on a computer before!


You’ll fit in with 99% of our other students… one established designer (that we know of) quietly enrolled into our program. Everybody else has never drafted digitally before in their life!

We had them drafting their first pattern in their second week. If they can do it, so can you. We created this with total beginners in mind and included them as beta testers.

I don't have enough time!

Can you carve out 20-30 mins a day, or 2-4 hours a week?

That’s like half an episode of your favorite show.

I bet if you looked at your day, you could find a few minutes to pursue your own interests.

And if you need to take a break during the course (for work/family/school), it’ll wait for you. You won’t lose access to the program.

I'm afraid this won't work for me!

Oh sweetie, we totally understand the hesitation when you want something so bad but don’t believe it will work for you.

That’s the beauty of our program. It takes you step by step, so you learn and build on your skills while practicing them.

We don’t just throw a bunch of stuff at you. Each module and lesson has a goal and helps you learn how to do a specific skill, even if you’re totally new.

Frequently Asked Questions

This course is for anyone wanting to learn how to draft digital sewing patterns and grade them. No previous experience required.

We had students go through the initial rounds of testing the course before it was even launched and help us add lessons to help you reach your goals. Their feedback helped shape the course. You’ll also learn how to set up shop and market your patterns!

Our students included homesewers, aspiring designers, business owners, tailors, grandmas, mothers and much more. This class has something for everyone!

You’ll be able to draft digitally on a computer or iPad and turn those patterns into pdfs with instructions. Then, you’ll learn how to market them and make promos that work in the background for you while you’re making other patterns. We show you how to set up a business like the one we have that sells our patterns in the background on autopilot, even when we decided to take 4 years off and go back to school for a business degree. Would you like your business to do that?

They don’t teach this in a college course (we also have a degree in fashion, so we know). We give you real-life options to apply your skills and ideas to help you grow your business. You save over $40,000 on paying tuition for design school.

The course starts today and ends in 8 weeks! It is a completely self-paced online course – you can decide when you start.

We would never want you to be unhappy! If you complete the action steps and haven’t learned anything new, contact us in the first 7 days of purchase and we will give you a full refund.

In the first few lessons we go over all the tools you need and multiple options for your budget and goals.

You’ll need a computer.

We give you a practice pattern to use, so you don’t even need a pattern yet.

Fashion Design Bootcamp teaches you how to think like a designer, get inspired, illustrate your designs, make templates to send to your patternmakers and how to set up your website and portfolios. It helps you set yourself apart and show off your designs to your growing audience. It teaches you everything about being a fashion designer, except how to draft patterns.

Flat Patternmaking Bootcamp teaches you how to draft sewing patterns, by creating the most common blocks that you’ll use to draft ANY kind of pattern. You’ll learn all about patterns, how to fix pattern fit issues and how to communicate to patternmakers if you decide to hire out for your future designs.

This course (digital sewing patterns) shows you how to draft directly in the computer and turn those into pdfs. If you’re not confident in your patternmaking ability or need a refresher, we suggest taking flat patternmaking concurrently with this one. Both courses together will give you a solid patternmaking background.

Ready to get the highest level of help? You’ll want to apply for our Design Incubator program. You’ll learn everything in our programs and then some. We’ll help you get set up on your design journey and show you how to succeed as a designer. This is a 12 month high-touch program. You get our highest level of support and guidance in it. Apply today!

We know everyone has different budgets. You DON’T need a software subscription for this! We’re using Affinity Designer and Affinity Publisher. If you already have fancy software, awesome, use that. If you don’t, then we’ll tell you about free software that does the exact same thing. However, I will show you the exact software that I use in the videos and for my own designs. You’ll also need a scanner or phone to take pictures of it. That’s pretty much it!

And you’ll need a good attitude! 🙂

When I first started, it took me about a month to get one sewing pattern into pdf form. After I was drafting for a while, I was able to draft, grade, write the instructions and make 6 complete pdf sewing patterns in one week. The more often you practice, the faster you get.
