this is a 6 day intensive class (with day 7 social day) in a small group setting. You leave with a custom pattern for YOUR figure, for a bodice, sleeve, skirt, and pants. You will also have gone over the fitting adjustments for the other class mates, which will assist you if you need to tailor clothes for anyone else.
Judith will also go over style selection to suit your body type.

The cost when i took the class was $800 and worth at least twice that. It includes lunch. You will need to provide muslin, a basic fit pattern from Vogue or Butterick or etc which will be used to start with, and basic sewing tools. The textbook can be ordered in advance or purchased on site.
Conselle Institute has a discount deal with a local hotel for startlingly low prices, i paid $69 a night (plus tax) which included a hearty break fast and a shuttle to and from class. Expect to go to dinner with the class, which is not included in the price, but most of the places we went had very budget friendly options.

This is an intensive class. I expected to do some sightseeing and shopping but mostly saw the scenery from my bus. I have fibromyalgia and it was very tiring, but do-able. the more energetic class mates went out a few evenings after dinner, i went to sleep.
