The Couture Dress

with Susan Khalje
The Couture Dress
From creating a muslin to adjusting fit and hand-stitching hems, Couturier Susan Khalje guides you step-by-step through couture sewing techniques!
Stop searching the ready-to-wear racks and learn how to sew a dress that fits like a dream! Once Susan Khalje teaches you these essential couture sewing techniques, you will have the skills to adapt the included Vogue pattern to create whatever dress you need - a swingy summer sleeveless, a classic winter-weight sheath with three-quarter sleeves or an elegant cocktail dress in seasonless black lace. Susan will help you construct a muslin and transfer the modifications to your pattern for a perfect fit, discover the magic of underlinings, achieve perfect set-in sleeves and finish your dress with flawless details like a hand-picked zipper.

"Susan Khalje is a wonderful teacher, who shares both her extraordinary knowledge and love of exquisite couture sewing in the most welcoming and confidence-building manner. I barely felt like I was taking this course online - it was as if Susan were in the room with me! The Craftsy platform makes it so easy to review techniques, take notes, take lessons over and over, and ask questions. Quite simply, this course changed the way I sew - and I love and enjoy it more than ever now!"
