I finished this class by Kenneth King and can not say enough good things about it.

This is a coat construction class. All construction aspects are covered. No fitting information is given. The only complaint I have is the coat pattern isn't something I would have selected and I really didn't like the fabric used to make the coat.

I posted a review a little while ago (under Sewing Class Reviews) so you can go read about the class if you are thinking about taking it.

I bought this class as well. While I think Kenneth King is a fantastic teacher, I do find the pattern drafting lesson quite sparse. There's quite a lot drafting and changes made to the original pattern and very little (if any) of the actual how-to/process is shown in the lesson. The final draft is shown but not how we actually get there, step by step. I would have loved to have seen Mr. King actually do the steps then just tell me about the step in a sentence or two.

I bought this class and planning to use it this fall. I wanted the detailed construction information. I can get the fitting other places. Off to read your review

I just watched the classes. My first pass is to always watch all the lessons, then start my project. I find so many questions are answered further into the classes.

I got a laugh out of their use of little black rimmed glasses on each info/tip popup -- just like KK's reading glasses. Nice touch
