I studied at UTS a Bachelor of Design in fashion and textiles. I have worked as a designer assistant, a sewing machinist and hand embellisher at quite a few places. Currently I am self-employed as a dressmaker @couturebyrita. I have a burning desire to teach others sewing. I love seeing my student's response to learning and how excited they are when things finally make sense! During my path of learning about sewing, I have always wanted a mentor, or someone to teach the basics in a non-confusing way, and that's ultimately why I want to be that person for someone else!
Rita was a great teacher, extremely patient and willing to answer any questions I had. I learnt a lot during the session and am really excited to start making my own clothes!
Rita is an amazing teacher, very patient, great at explaining everything from the basics to patterns and just a lovely person.
Looking forward to my next lesson!
Rita is a lovely, patient and an awesome sewing teacher. She is highly efficient and a master of her craft. The exercises she runs through are useful and practical. I look forward to booking in more sessions to improve my sewing technique and finish my project!
Excellent classes; I love this class
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Five star
I will book my next classes soon
Rita was truly amazing! From the moment she opened her door, her friendly disposition made me feel at ease. Such a talented young lady. Definitely great value for money paid! I have very basic sewing knowledge, Rita was able to quickly go through what I knew and refine and correct it (I was actually doing one thing wrong all these years and finally know why my machine was playing up lol). Rita answered all my questions and not once did she get angry, upset or a hint of annoyance at my gazillion questions! We went through why we cut this like that or why we sew certain ways, she made a pattern from my daughters dress I took, wow! I honestly learnt so much and the information I gained has been put to great use. I would recommend Rita to anyone and everyone Thank you so much Rita
The one-on-one instruction was great as it allowed us to focus on the things I wanted to learn and not on things I already knew. Rita is very patient and no question was too trivial. I left feeling more confident than when I arrived. Would highly recommend This class and Rita.
Excellent, learnt how to use machine, stitched my own skirt, will go back again for more practice
