|As one with intermediate sewing skills I wanted a refresher course especially that focused on skirt fitting, and this class promised to help students professionally customize skirt patterns.
I do not own Diana Rupp's Sew Everything Workshop, Diana's book for which this class served as a companion course. Instead I used a McCalls straight skirt pattern. At the end of the class I had a beautifully lined skirt that fit very nicely. Since the class i've applied the lessons to another skirt with great success.
Diana's style is very easy to follow and the lessons were divided very logically.
I found a few lessons slow, such as how to thread a sewing machine, but I knew this basic information would be presented for beginners.
My only criticism was the mediocre video quality as the video "froze" regularly anywhere from a few seconds to permanently. This was so frustrating.
All in all, Diana is a competent and pleasant instructor and the class was worth the $29.99 I invested.
