Adjust the Bust is a very good class for beginners. Kathleen explains very clearly how to make full bust adjustments and small bust adjustments. The class is in 6 sessions;
Prep the pattern, moving the Bust Point up or down, adding a dart for a No Dart Top, adjusting a Side Seam dart and adjusting a Princess Seam dart.
I like Kathleen's style of teaching. She is never in a hurry and explains why she is doing the particular adjustment. Another plus for this class is for Small Bust Adjustments. Usually books and other instructors tell you to reverse the process for a SBA. Kathleen actually demonstrates the SBA so you can see how it is done.
The camera work is very well done and you can clearly see what Kathleen is doing.
All in all a great class for beginners.

I have just purchased 2 of her Craftsy classes one on pattern grading and another on shoulder,neck ,and back fitting.....actually I 'm glad all of you agree that it is s-l-o-w going as this is my first attempt at these skills....thank you all for the great comments.

I fell asleep ONCE, but still a good class

I also found it very S-l-o-w going, but decided that if I had never done a FBA the speed of the class would be helpful.

I'm taking this class, too, and while I like the information she presents, I found the pace of the class to be very s-l-o-w going. I think you're right-on, AdaH, about this class especially helpful for beginners. For those already familiar with basic FBA techniques, Kathleen's use of extensive guide marks and reference lines will help improve accuracy.
