A course that grows as you grow

We want to share our joy and passion for sewing. That’s why the Masterclass consists of 52 modular units that build on each other and are designed to gradually expand your sewing knowledge and improve your skills to expert level.

Every 14 days, a new unit is unlocked, allowing you to proceed through the course at your own pace. With each unit, you will create a new, high-quality garment according to your own ideas.

“A unique sewing experience that not only expands your wardrobe with many favorite pieces, but also enhances your skills with each piece.”

We guide you

With precise video instructions

We all know bad instructions. But while the IKEA shelf then (usually) succeeds, it can be very frustrating when sewing if you miss an important detail.

That’s why Stefan takes you by the hand in the Masterclass and guides you with detailed step-by-step video instructions and close-ups through the entire sewing process. You get a precise look at the techniques as you would see them from a master’s perspective. In addition, all the tips and tricks from our long practice that will make sewing easier for you.

And the advantage of an online course? You learn at your own pace. Every sequence, every technique and every stitch are shown to you exactly, so you see exactly how you need to proceed. And you can repeat, rewind and pause the videos as often as you want. So you learn comfortably from home and implement your knowledge whenever and however you want. Our participants love this content and the comfort of learning at their own pace.

Really good patterns

That fit really well

How frustrating is it when you get a great fabric and work passionately and lovingly on your sewing project… and in the end realize that the garment doesn’t really fit. That’s exactly why in the Tailor Academy you work only with highly professional patterns – just like the ones we use ourselves in our modern custom tailoring. First-class cuts in all sizes, which fit just very well.

And because every body is unique, we show you right from the start how to optimally adjust and cut the patterns to each figure – and deepen this knowledge throughout the Masterclass. This way, you get not just fitting, but custom-made pieces. The result is a beautiful garment that fits perfectly and makes you

In the Masterclass, you receive these professional patterns in all sizes (worth a total of USD 8,240) for printing (A4) and plotting (A0). But not only that, they may also be used for commercial sewing after the course. For perfect results, which are not only homemade, but made for you. In a quality that is hard to find elsewhere. Convince yourself, you will see the difference from the first unit.

The Pieces You'll Create

Each module is a finished piece of clothing. From dresses and skirts to jackets and menswear, followed by wedding attire and high fashion.
