Love the fitting session and learning how to fit the pattern to my body type. The class is structured really well and we have enough time to get the project done on time. Now I can sew knits! Lisa clearly explains things and is patient and kind. Just a terrific class. I am recommending it widely!
While at PFI, I focused on the Apparel Entrepreneurship pathway, but really enjoyed any and every class that had to do with patternmaking. I really enjoyed creating garments. Now I have a job at The North Face in Denver as a Technical Development Intern. My advice is to pursue what you enjoy knowing that it’s not a cakewalk. I am really happy to have chosen to go to PFI. They gave me everything I could have hoped for and more to start and launch my career. It is a great program.
