There were a LOT of insights and a LOT of great explanation to EVERY STEP, It is very in-depth and very tutorial.

Not every dressmaker knows how to properly make them, how to treat delicate fabrics such as beaded laces and how to fit his working method to the fabric and dress type. And actually few know how to make them to the Highest Level .
And not only that, making a transparent corset, the basic of almost every bridal & evening dress which is done on the RIGHT WAY & perfectly fit to the body is difficult to achieve by many dressmakers.
Making these dresses requires great techniques, speed, accuracy and you need to adjust your skills to the highest standard to become successful.
And what is taught out there is just not enough.
And possibly the greatest problem she’s seen dressmakers run into is... achieving the perfect fit.
Dressing an individual client in her custom gown is all about creating a dress that is perfectly fitted to her measurements and body shape.
The problem is, this does not come easy, And it actually can be VERY frustrating when you don't follow a Proven System.
And while this process can be challenging, there is one common misconception leading many dressmakers to believe that getting a perfect fit involves just altering your standard pattern.
While altering the pattern is key, it doesn’t suffice. Vital steps are required to create a gown that is designed exactly to your client’s measurements. but not only that..
..EVERY single step in the process with your bespoke client requires the knowledge and techniques to make sure you are not disrupting your fitting. Things which many dressmakers, even experienced, don’t take into consideration. They invest the time needed to alter their pattern perfectly, but then make so many mistakes during the dressmaking process. As a result, they find themselves back in the cycle of making multiple adjustments, which comes with lots of frustration. Worst case, these mistakes can require a complete re-make.
With her 20+ years of experience, making custom Haute Couture dresses, Jehan created a painless method to follow that will result in a dress that's a perfect fit for your client's body and shape. After following Jehan’s easy-to-follow process, you’ll forever find it effortless to make every gown you sew fit your client’s body and shape.

"I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to Jehan and learning from her, she doesn’t have one of those voices that makes you want to sleep, she is so engaging and easy to follow!!!

I've been making clothes for about 4 years now, before taking this course I had no idea how to make a corset and I couldn't find any that fit me either, now I know how to perfectly do that. I also didn't know how to work with beaded fabrics, and now I realize that it's not as hard as I made it out to be in my head! I recommend this course to anyone who want to go into fashion design..."
"All of the other courses that I have tried previous to this one, they didn't really go into that for details and they were for very basic things and for garments that I wouldn't be making in the future and didn't really hold any value to them.
This Master course has everything I was looking for to learn as a beginner dressmaker and as someone who is working in the fashion industry in the future. My goals for my career are to have my own fashion house or work as a designer for another fashion brand. And it shows in very specific detail from the beginning to end how you construct a couture gown as it is done by professionals. Also I find some very useful information about hand sewing in this course and working with beaded fabrics which is what I definitely was looking to learn for my high fashion career- that I couldn't find ANYWHERE ELSE. If you are looking to do anything with dressmaking or just fashion design in general this course will help you in a LOT of ways. I really loved this course, it provided me with skills I am gonna be taking forever in my fashion career."
