I enrolled in this class as I have developed a small hump in my high back caused by lifestyle - too much hunching over sewing machine and computer as well as age- true in my case

I am so glad I enrolled - I learnt that if your garment does not hang correctly from the shoulder area then there will be problems and there were many more than I had thought of. For instance I did not think of the effect a sloping or square shoulder could have on the side seams.

Making the necessary adjustments became quite clear and easy to do through Kathleen's excellent video.

I would highly recommend this class to anyone who has less than the perfect structure in these areas - I don't think you will regret it.

Thanks for the informative review. I do have a question for anyone who cares to comment. I am a novice sewer. I do know how to follow a blouse pattern. Do you think this class would be too advanced for me? I do know how to make adjustments for slope of shoulder and bust dart placement. I am having trouble adjusting for minor swayback when I sew blouses. Do you think this class would help?

Glad to see your review. I have just signed up for this class. I am trying to improve the back fit of a t-shirt I am sewing. (or trying to sew...) Thank you for reviewing this.

Thanks for your review. I have the same issue. I was able to have my pattern adjusted to accommodate the rounded back and shoulder slope. I am trying to work on my posture.
