For a complete review, including a detailed synopsis of course content and what you get when you enrol in the class, please check out my website QuickNeed.com.

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.
