So has anyone here taken this class?

Tailoring Ready-to-Wear by Angela Wolf

I'm thinking of taking this one. I think it would be a good value.

When I came back to sewing last year, I quickly discovered that fabric choices for garment sewing are rather dismal in my area. So to be able to better tweak Ready-to-Wear might increase some bargain-shopping options, IMO.

I would love to have others' feedback on the course as well. I inherited a TON of clothes that don't quite fit with my mom's passing.

------
My measurements = 47-35-43. Height = 5ft11in.
RTW size =18 on top, 14/16 on bottom.
Sewing size = 20 and I alter from there.

I am not in this class but I am taking 6 others on Craftsy.
I love altering RTW but more for getting a good fit. I think Angela addresses more about altering for embellishment or individuality. But she is an inspiational teacher, its a non-expiring class and it has a message board so topics are pretty open. I dont see how you can go wrong for $15.

I signed up for it, but have not watched yet. I have 5 other classes I am taking through Craftsy. I will be altering older clothes since the new RTW has such poor quality

I finished watching it and thought it was very good. The only thing I would have liked to see is how to make RTW bigger. All of the examples are to make things smaller.

Right at the very start Angela says these days it's pretty hard to alter RTW clothes bigger because the seam allowances are so small. She therefore streeses you should always buy clothes too big and size down.

I have enough fit classes at the moment and probably won't jump on this one because I don't have a lot of RTW to fix. The most I ever get to do is hemming pant legs for DD.
However, I do LOVE this blog as it's writer has some very insightful solutions to altering RTW I've seen in quite a while.

I got this class and so far have only used the hemming pants instructions. My friend gave me 9 pairs of pants to hem for her so it came in handy!

Unlike other Craftsy classes, this class is one that I'll just refer to when I have the need to alter something. Love Craftsy classes!
