Awesome Opportunity Here....

I have had this class for a long time...and every time I look at it, it kind of blows my mind: Susan Khalje is one of the "queens" of courtier sewing. And this early class is one where Craftsy was willing to let the lessons go on until material was covered really thoroughly. (I wish they'd kept that philosophy. I have reached the point where I won't buy them unless they are a certain length.) To think that I can watch Susan take me through every step (even the muslin!) of making a ...

Long-lasting enjoyment and value

I bought this class back in 2012, and have used it so much since then! I waited on some of it until I got a dress form, then I came back to it, and I've used it for other projects as well. I'm doing another one now, and I keep returning to the video over and over again—Susan's instructions are invaluable, and she gives great tips as she goes. The techniques are great, and have really helped me make better clothes that fit me well and are well constructed, too. Thanks so much!

Beyond awesome

This class is incredible value: 15 long detailed lessons, crammed with information and inspiration. Even if you never plan to make a couture dress, you will learn an enormous amount. Susan is a charming and extraordinary instructor. I am not yet adept enough to make a garment of this nature, but the class makes me feel that with some practice, I may get there. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment. Thank you Susan!!

So Far So Amazing!

Susan is probably my favourite teacher! I have over 20 craftsy classes and I genuinely find her so easy to learn from. She is full of a wealth of information and I have already learnt so much just from watching a small part of this so far. I wish there were many more classes taught by Susan! I am just past beginner stage but I feel that Susan has given me the knowledge to go on much further. Thank you Susan!!!

Excellent Class!

I have now watched this class all the way through, and can't believe how much I have learned. I am only a beginner, but the techniques seem approachable, when they are explained by an instructor as engaging and detail oriented as Susan. This class has made me a believer in the couture approach.

I learned to hand-sew when I was quite young, and machine sew garments in high school. But, they never turned out very well. I learned the basics of operating a sewing machine, which I've ...
