|I signed up for Gertie's Bombshell Course because she was using a strapless dress pattern. I always require substantial FBAs, and took the course hoping that I would end up with a tried 'n true bustier pattern that could be used in a myriad of ways. This class met all my expectations.
Gertie is a wonderful instructor. The course covers fabric, pattern adjustments (including how to download, print and use a PDF pattern from Burda), fitting a muslin (or, in my case, multiple muslins), underlining, shaped cups, the use of twill tape to stabilize a neckline, and lining with spiral steel boning.
This is a great sewing course. You can access it any time. There is no time limit, and Gertie will answer any questions you have as you view each lesson through the Q & A forum. It's a brilliant online course set up. She is also easy to watch, entertaining, and goes over each step and question very thoroughly.
If you sign up for the course through her blog you'll get a discount.
This was my first ever sewing course. I am fully self-taught through careful following of Vogue pattern instructions and a variety of sewing books. A lot of techniques which I have read about and used once or twice are all put into use in this one garment. I would highly recommend this course!
