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

I can't overlook the fact that the class didn't show the different measurement methods for bra fitting, and correct fitting. This has to be one of the biggest reasons that I am hesitant to recommend this class: the whole point of this class is about bust fitting... it helps if you have a very solid starting point for one of women's most common fitting problems.

Having some experience in fitting, I found that the most helpful material really started around the end of lesson three onwards. If you haven't done any custom alterations prior to this class, all the lessons will be helpful. Lesson four - adjusting no dart tops - was absolutely great; even with my practice at alterations, Kathleen makes this somewhat difficult and daunting process seem so easy.

Adjust the Bust will work complimentary with other Craftsy courses, such as Fast Track Fitting, by building upon your knowledge. It summarises how to make adjustments for the bust quite well - which ultimately is what the class is about.

I think that the price is a little steep at US$39.99 (approximately AU$42); although plenty of examples are given, you are only really taught one technique throughout the entire course. However, if you are planning to do any bust adjustments and fitting, then this class is still worth checking out.

I would say that advanced-beginners (comfortable enough with sewing to start custom fitting) right through to advanced sewers will find this class beneficial.

It's really great that you are doing these reviews. Especially so since Craftsy only shows the 5-star reviews on their site. I have enjoyed reading your comments here and on your blog. Thanks.
