I also taught at London College of Fashion for 4 years on both BA and MA courses. My pattern-cutting covers outerwear, separates, nightwear, swimwear, evening/bridal and lingerie, and I'm able to make toiles and samples as well. I have a base in London, can work from home, or can come to you.
I can handle difficult and intricate styling and/or fabrics, but I'm equally happy to undertake straight-forward projects - either way high quality and great fit are assured.
Area Covered: The North West and South East (including London). Rest of UK subject to travel costs.
Work Experience Summary: I've worked for La Senza, Liberty and Viyella, and free-lanced for a wide range of companies including Tracy Boyd, Madeleine Press, Pistol Panties, and suppliers to Top Shop, Miss Selfridge, Next, Debenhams and DP. I've helped numerous students with the pattern-cutting and sample-making for their final collections and provided technical expertise for a number of start-up and fledgling businesses who needed input on patterns, sizing, specifications and grading.
Education Summary: BA Fashion from Manchester Polytechnic, followed by continuous professional development, eg Advanced Bridal Techniques (LCF) and Bra Pattern-cutting and grading / Bra Making / Bra Fitting (all de Montfort).

Deborah's level of work is so high. She is clearly very skilled in her craft and very committed to her high standards. She is also easy to work with and responds often even though she is situated very far away. The postal service was easy and smooth and in no way hindered our process.
