~ Roberto Holway

"I've been doing all your courses for the past couple of days and I just don't want them to end! They are super informative and helpful, hope we get to see more from you!"

~ Mica Fernandez

“I've been sewing for years using commercial patterns and never understood how did they were developed. Now armed with this knowledge I feel that I it will be better able to alter patterns to fit me and yes, even venture into making my own patterns. This was inspiring for me since I have struggled to get that perfect fit. Now I am armed and ready to improve.”

~ Rebekah Yoder

"Fashion Design has been my passion right from when I was a little girl, but still struggling... I believe your classes have helped me to be what I loved to be as a little girl."

~ Bolaji Olabiyi

"I really enjoyed this Pattern Making Course. I found the instructions really easy to follow and understand. I’ve been driving myself crazy trying to work it all out by reading my text book, and this has made everything so simple. Thank you."

~ Mel Thorley

"This class was the perfect draping class. I just ordered my first dress form and wanted to proactively learn some basic draping techniques before my form arrives. This class exceeded my expectations with the clear-cut instructions and fitting examples. I also love the extra information that I learned about fabrics. Very nicely executed! I can't wait to see what other classes Nino Via has to offer...".

~ Brittany Erin

“Fantastic class! Thanks very much Nino, I love all of your classes and I was excited to see a new one appear in my inbox tonight! Very clear steps and I've learnt so much on pattern making thanks to your teaching! I highly recommend your classes for anyone looking to learn how to design and create pattern from scratch! Excellent content! Fabulous teacher! Thank you!! :D”

“Having completed a Pattern making course at my local college many years ago and without any success at making my own patterns I left it. 

During lock down in the Uk I decided to take up pattern making again so I looked on line and saw a few courses which I looked at but did not really understand, then hey presto I saw Nino doing pattern manipulation and this lesson just stood out from the rest. His lessons are so informative and easy to follow it makes you want to get out your pencil and paper and have a go. Pattern making is very complex and I find looking at the same lesson 3 or 4 times is a great help. 

I am so interested in this subject I practice every day and am looking forward to designing making a pattern and getting out my sewing machine and finishing the job.

Thanks Nino, you are a star!” 

~ Anne Hadley

I would definitely recommend this class to anyone interested in fashion design or draping. I have taken both draping and pattern making courses and I found these to be concise and straight to the point. Each lesson was easy to follow and easy to understand, although I would have liked a little more detail. I am looking forward to taking more classes with Nino!
