Overall
Wow this course is long!

The Couture Dress class is quite good, however it felt a bit like a combination of several other classes. In fact if you have the class Sew the Perfect Fit, I feel like you can probably skip the first five lessons as that class covers all the content covered. From lesson six onwards will be more helpful for you - especially if you know how to properly fit garments - focus is upon the little details; lining up patterns for example.

I wouldn't recommend the class to a beginner sewer, however there is quite a lot of information here that they will benefit from. Unless you are already doing couture techniques for a while, this class is worth the purchase.

Loved this class. I always wanted to know how to make a couture dress. I will not make everything this way, but good to know the techniques. I also have Cynthia Guffey's DVDs on couture sewing. Hope you enjoyed making your garment.
