Have a question?
1. Do I get the patterns and the sewing course?
Yes! You get the patterns in letter size format for the USA and Canada and DIN A4 format for the rest of the world.
2. Your patterns come in lots of files. Why is that?
When I taught sewing courses the standard multi-size patterns were difficult to use. There wasn't enough space and they were very flimsy. So I practically did what others call 'layering' only I went a step further and separated the pattern sizes. Now each size has its own file, preventing a lot of paper waste. Just print the size you need.
3.I bought my pattern on a different site, how do I access my pattern?
You should have received an email from us letting you know how to access your pattern on the Academy site. If you haven't got it, no problem! Just send us an email and we will add you as soon as we can.
4. Why do you have two sites: The academy and frocksandfrolics.com?
frocksandfrolics.com is my first site and it has all the bells and whistles of a great store. It did however not provide a satisfactory platform for all my videos. That is why I established the academy as the place which combines both, a brilliant place to take my sewing courses to another level and give my customers a much better experience.
5. This site is in English, do you still do German instructions?
Yes! Unfortunately most platforms don't offer multiple language sites. So I kept the landing pages in English but added all the German content to the course. This includes the patterns and all the videos.
6. Do you offer beginner sewing courses?
I am working on several singing and dancing courses now, which will combine a number of patterns and give you many basic sewing skills. For now please enroll in our free Sewing 101 course for all the basics.
7. Do you do pattern drafting courses?
We are working on those for you too. We will include courses for grading, corset making and bridal.
We will also offer pattern blocks at frocksandfrolics.com. In October 2018 we will officially start our advanced courses!
