For a complete review and outline of the class please check out my site


The Carefree Fly Front Coat class is not for beginners; you need to be confident using and even altering sewing patterns. Having said that, Kenneth does walk you through most of the things that you need to know. Another thing of note for beginners, as I mentioned under the Cons section, is that Kenneth doesn't cover every single step in the construction process - you will need to be able to refer to the pattern instructions and his own customised instructions.

I think intermediate sewers will find the class somewhat informative - Kenneth does cover a few good tips and tricks. Expert sewers will have a nice class to follow along and help them feel more confident in moving away from pre-designed commercial sewing patterns to

If you are even slightly interested in learning how to make your own patterns or altering commercial patterns to make your own designs, then this class in an essence is perfect you. Kenneth how's you how absolutely easy it is to add extra design and functional features to the garment, such as fly facings, yokes, facings and much more. Seriously after seeing just how easy it is - even if you weren't interested in doing this before - you will be wanting to try it out. As part of your course materials you don't just have the video but instructions in the supplies work sheet as well. Just perfect.

Thank you for your review. I always wonder if he's a good instructor in those classes.
