Hi! I'm Maaike Andriessen, passionate dressmaker and founder of The Dressmakers Academy.
25 years ago, I had my first sewing lesson in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
A lifelong passion was born.
My first job as a dressmaker was at a bridal Couture House where my love for beautiful fabrics and couture sewing techniques was ignited. Since then, I have worked at many bridal houses, ran my own workshop and worked for many private and commercial clients. One of the highlights so far in my career was working on a gown for our beautiful Dutch Queen Maxima. To be able to share my knowledge, I founded The Dressmakers Academy in 2018. Based at an ancient tower in the lovely city of Edam, I teach on- and offline sewing courses and sewing retreats. I am also currently working on my first book on couture sewing techniques.
