Was your first garment you attempted to sew a disaster and you’re ready to throw in the towel?
Girl, you’re not alone!
Have you been struggling trying to learn to sew garments?
Welcome to Dreamer to Dressmaker!
Dreamer to Dressmaker takes you from beginner, dreaming about learning to sew, to dressmaker.
This is an in-depth, step-by-step workshop that actually teaches you how to sew as you construct a garment.
Learn to sew, build your sewing skills and confidence in this self paced workshop.
Let's be honest, sewing a freaking pillowcase as your first learn to sew project is just boring.
Let me ask you this...
Do you want to sew the dresses and garments that you see all over Pinterest?
Maybe you want to start sewing clothes for your kids?
Are you always feeling like your sewing just isn't good enough?
Or, have you wanted to start an Etsy store but your sewing skills just aren't up to par?
Why would you want to waste time and money on a project that just isn't going to get you anywhere or teach you the skills you need to start really sewing?
How would you like to stop wasting hours of your time trolling Youtube to find that one tutorial that might teach you what you've been searching for?
What would that be worth to you?
Dreamer to Dressmaker is a unique workshop that goes in-depth, giving you comprehensive, hands on sewing instruction right in the comfort of your own home.
I use to struggle like crazy when I was first learning to sew.
I had no-one to teach me or any sewing classes available to me. I would spend hours trying to find the right tutorial on Youtube.
Hours that I could have been sewing if I had just had the right instruction.
After lots of trial and error (and lots of wasted money and fabric) it started to finally come together.
I was able to create my own smarter system and construction techniques. I started seeing faster, smarter, more consistent results.
I stopped wasting time and most importantly, money!
Learning to sew doesn't have to be hard and you don't have to be on your own.
You can literally skip this whole painful process.
I know you have the motivation to learn (you wouldn't be reading this if you didn't).
What you need now are the tools and techniques, personal guidance, and detailed instruction to go from beginner to dressmaker.
Why do you need this workshop?
Unless you are happy wasting time on Youtube and getting nowhere, you need this workshop.
Or, maybe you just have no idea even where to begin.
Seriously, you need expert instruction that improves your sewing skills so you can stop wasting time and see actual results.
You can't cobble together different tutorials and expect to get the results you are desperately hoping for.
You need step-by-step guidance and detailed instruction from unique, tried and tested pro techniques.
You will leave this workshop with:
A solid foundation of sewing skills.
Smarter and more efficient construction techniques.
The ability to apply these skills to any sewing pattern.
Access to a growing, amazing sewing community with continued support.
The complete knowledge on how to sew a garment.
What people are saying:
"Fan-girl here. She puts a LOT of time and effort to help the beginner sewist. I have seen, read and looked for beginning sewing. This, by far, is the best. Thank you Rachael for all that you have done. You make it entertaining. I look forward to future live videos and SALs."
"I follow lots of sewing blogs - Indiesew, Gertie, Tilly and the Buttons, lots, but I find myself always coming to you now. I love all the live stuff. I love that I can ask a question and have it answered right away. I've been sewing for a few years now, but have learned so much from you. I can't wait for the Dreamer to Dressmaker. Keep teaching - you are truly a natural! I see myself wanting to learn to do boning and things I never thought I would with you! Thanks for being my sewing guru!!!!!
"I just wanted to tell you I'm a new fan! But I'm also in awe of you because what you are offering for garment makers is what I dream of offering for quilters!"
