I loved this class! Here are pictures of the dress I finished following this class. I am very pleased with the way it turned out.

Here are the highlights:

  • The class showed me how to work with a pattern without seam allowances

  • I had never done a muslin fitting and this is a great example

  • Because I was a beginning sewer when I started the class, it had never occurred to me to re-inforce the fashion fabric with another fabric to make the dress more constructed. This showed that and was great.

  • It was fantastic seeing the same dress bodice used on different skirts.

  • The class really walks you through every step of the dress.

  • FITTING - I feel like a dress that doesn't fit or work is a part of my sewing past. I learned how to make adjustments. This dress really fits and I feel like I can apply that knowledge to other projects in the future.



I think this is a fantastic class! Plus, you can't beat the price. If you are considering taking it, I wouldn't hesitate.
