Specializing in bridal alterations
The academy is extremely specific to the study of bridal gown alterations. Each level of the academy builds on the lessons learned in the previous level. Therefore, all students must start with Level 1 and pass this level before they can go on to level 2 or 3 etc.
The classes includes many hours of zoom time one on one with Dee Dee Anderson. She will be your mentor and will advise and coach you on sewing techniques and setting up your own career.

If you are struggling with a certain skill, Dee Dee can talk you through it. It is especially important that you feel confident with your skills and practice until you are comfortable with all the skills taught in each level.
Finally, you will have testing to be sure you understand all the material in each module. The Academy wants to be sure each student is well trained in the skills needed to do wedding dress alterations.
