Bio

Hi! I spent a year teaching English in South America and I know that I'll thoroughly enjoy the opportunity to teach people how to sew, something I'm very passionate about. I'm specifically proficient in men's shirtmaking and it all started due to a lack of sleeve length which was very annoying to deal with.

Hi! I spent a year teaching English in South America and I know that I'll thoroughly enjoy the opportunity to teach people how to sew, something I'm very passionate about. I'm specifically proficient in men's shirtmaking and it all started due to a lack of sleeve length which was very annoying to deal with.

Ready-to-wear garments are made in a way to benefit what the company thinks will be the majority of people, and it's often the case the customer's body doesn't agree with garment specifications. Fully custom shirts are the way to go to address the details in fit that are impossible to avoid in ready-to-wear.

I've spent countless hours in sewing techniques and have a variety of methods to achieve similar results. I've also spent time working with pattern systems in order to produce fully custom shirts. This involves pattern making specific to each individual, taking into account their measurements not only horizontally, but vertically. Balance is a term used by tailors to describe the postural relationship between the front and back of the customer relative to the front and back of the pattern pieces. This relationship should be similar and it is a lack of similarity that often causes fitting defects.

I'm a very easy going guy with a positive outlook on teaching/learning and believe that I can teach fundamental methods that you'll be able to carry with you and grow independently. Shoot me a message!
