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 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.
