Signe, originally from South Africa, studied Pattern Making and Design
at the University of Natal, South Africa and the McCabe School of
Dressmaking in Johannesburg, South Africa. She has worked with numerous
designers for more than 38 years. Embracing the unique approach of
drafting patterns using body measurements rather than draping, Signe has
developed an original and effective method of pattern making, which is
now a signature class of the SLCC Fashion Institute. It is very
difficult to fit oneself and Signe's system eliminates the difficulty.
Signe finds great satisfaction in watching students make that special
outfit for themselves in half the time and with less expense and with
the kind of results they only dream of.
