Many women struggle with sewing patterns because they come in standard sizing which often leads to fitting issues. I teach a pattern making method that gives you a customized fit based on your body measurements, giving you a solid foundation to design the clothes you dream of.

At Gina Renee Designs, I know you want to be happy with the clothes you’ve made. In order to do that, you need to sew & design clothes you Love that Fit. The problem is that most sewing patterns are offered in standard sizing which can make you feel frustrated because you constantly need to make pattern corrections. I believe you shouldn’t be limited to the sewing pattern styles and standard sizing out there.

I understand how it feels to go through all the work making something, only to find out it doesn’t fit, which is why I’ve created a pattern drafting method using proprietary calculations based solely on your measurements. This method gives you the customized fit you’re looking for.

Here’s how you do it: 1. Measure Yourself, 2. Draft a Moulage (pattern), and 3. Sew & Fit your Moulage.

After you have your Moulage, we’ll add ease to it which creates your sloper (base pattern) for dresses and tops.

The next course enrollment is opening soon. In the meantime, Join the Wait List so you can be informed when the next course is starting. So you can stop wasting your time & money making clothes that don’t fit well, and instead have a solid foundation to design the clothes you dream of.

After 17 years of working in the garment industry, I'm happy to share my pattern making and sewing techniques with you. My journey in the industry started at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in NYC where I studied. I then worked in high fashion fitting beautiful gowns and tailored women’s suits. After moving to California, I worked for Oakley & then at Vans, creating Snowboarding outerwear and surf boardshorts. My husband and I moved to Germany where I worked freelance and started GRD :) We've been living in Switzerland for the last 5 1/2 years, where I lead a talented team of Pattern Makers at a Sportswear brand. I love the hiking, swimming and cycling in the beautiful surrounding nature.
