|This is class is a 3-part fitting class for jackets.
Part 1: Our class hand drafted jacket patterns. There was a lot of class participation here and a lot of support at the beginning of the class. Once I finally got going, I made a draft pattern that fit better than anything that I've made in the past or purchase. I was very excited about this. I did have additional questions which were not answered. The jacket draft was a basic v-neck jacket.
Part 2: This section was on drafting lapels for the jacket. I didn't do much with this section.
Part 3: We used an existing pattern to make a jacket. I'm actually still working through this section.
As with any online sewing class, you only get as much as you put in. However, I felt like this class was abandoned. There were continual problems from the beginning of this class. Multiple times the website was down for what seemed like weeks. I had questions from the Part 1 of the class that was never answered. Part 2, I kinda skipped. Not learning anything from this was entirely my own fault. Part 3, I really tried to get someone's attention here. I sent emails to class, to technical issues for the class, to the website adminstrator, and personal email to the instructor. There didn't seem to be anyone home. Since it is rare to even get an email from any of the existing classes, I think that there is another problem that hasn't been diagnosed or fixed. I haven't made the time to call the customer service.
I have taken many classes from this website and enjoyed every one of them. This is the first time that I've taken a class and not been happy. The one good thing is I can take the class again. As many times as I want to.
I do think that overall this would be an excellent class. I gave it the rating that I did only because of the problems with the website and there not being any responses to the class.
