"I took private lessons with Patricia and I had no idea what I was doing before I hired her. She has taught me everything from the basics to some advanced techniques that I never would have learned in a class full of students. My sewing and design skills have dramatically improved! "
"You will not regret investing in private lessons! I have not been able to find a teacher in LA that can teach me couture sewing skills and I came across Patricia's Instagram account. I knew I had to work with her. Quality instructors are hard to find and she has personalized all of my private lessons.
"Patricia is LA's best kept secret! I have learned so much from my private lessons. I had an idea how to develop my first collection but Patricia was able to teach me how to design a proper collection, create patterns, select fabrics and how to make all of my designs flow."
"I'm an aspiring designer. I didn't attend fashion school and was self taught. I needed a professional to help me get through the areas that I didn't have experience in such as finishing garments and draping. I feel confident after working with Patricia. She really knows her dressmaking skills! No one in LA teaches what she knows. She's incredibly knowledgeable and gives you so many tips and techniques that I never would have learned on my own"
"The Art of Fine Sewing: Sewing Special Occasion Fabrics was an amazing experience. I loved the class and I learned new and different ways to sew. Thank you!"

"I loved The Art of Fine Sewing class and the techniques that were shown. Hemming the light weight fabrics and sequins were very informative!"

"Patricia is an amazing instructor! She knows her craft and can explain things in a way you can understand. It's hard to find a skilled person such us Patricia that shares her knowledge. I took fashion courses many years ago and it was nice to learn the techniques again especially with private lessons. She's worth the investment!"
"I wanted to take draping and sewing classes but the fashion design school I was looking into wouldn't let me take classes unless I enrolled in their full program. Then I found Haute Fashion Studio on IG! I got exactly what I needed from Patricia. It's been a fun journey. I plan designing dresses and Patricia is an expert in this area. There's so much to learn about dresses alone."
