I really do recommend doing the class if you want to learn how to adjust patterns to fit your measurements.

Here is my review on the pattern

Barbara Deckert. She explains things so simply, and tells it as it is.
I've got the pant fitting techniques from Sandra Betzina too, and I must admit I prefer Barbaras style of video, Sandra seems to jump here to there, it makes me feel a bit "rushed" watching it.

Oh, I agree with you on Barbara's class! I took the Craftsy class and loved it - and I am not a plus size (I usually wear size 14 in the big 4 patterns). Her advice was soooo good!! I recommend the course to anyone who needs help adjusting patterns.

She really is wonderful eh. I enjoy her teaching, nice and simple. I too learnt so much. I'm making a blouse next (one of the new Sandra Betzina todays fit Vogue ones) and it will come in handy for doing FBA etc

I have been a fan of Barbara Deckert since I read her book many years ago. I also took her class when it was offered. Love her style and learned so much. I am hoping Craftsy will have her do a pants fitting class.

snuzal, you top is beautiful. I love the color and fabric.
