What can I say? Shannon did it again with another terrific class. What amazed me the most was the broad spectrum (no pun intended) of class members and their specific fitting issues. It was delightful to see the pictures and observe the progress of members, whether they had very large hips or had no waistline; all were treated equally with the same patience and techniques that Shannon displays so well.

I came away with the best fitting pair of pullon pants that I ever owned. No wrinkles, no tight fitting. Spectacular! And I have Shannon to thank.

If I could give a small piece of advice, that might seem obvious (to some but not me) and that is to use the pattern Shannon suggests. The one thing that I didn't like from the class was the fact that I used a semi self-drafted pattern. This put me so far behind that I felt overwhelmed; my own fault for doing things my way--I was using the wrong tool. I should have redrafted the whole thing, for a thinner leg and thigh, but time was running out and I was getting lost in the details.

I now have three muslin classes "under my belt" and have the best tools to use. Thank you again, Shannon, for all your hard work!

Absolutely. Shannon's classes are always very worthwhile. After taking five of them, and reviewing several I am so glad I did, and the money was very well spent!
