Wonderful day spent with a very patient teacher explaining her method of cutting patterns/clothes to fit. Chinelo thank you so much. Definitely will go on another class.

Really wonderful, my dress looks amazing and fits like a glove. Made a shirt from the same block the very next day and ordered more material to make 2 more dresses!

I started sewing again because I was inspired by Chinelo, been taught by her was such a privilege as it bought out my creativity and to work outside the conventional sewing techniques. I gave the overall experience fours stars because I didn't finish the dress during the workshop but it was good value for money. I am glad I came to the workshop and I am excited to wear my dress.
