"I really loved this class! The instructor was perfect, in my opinion. The pace was just right and very easy to follow. I am a beginner and I had already taken a beginner sewing class so this class was great. I loved being able to make my own pattern and sew up this simple, cute skirt. I enjoyed how comfortable the instructor was and the tips she gave were very helpful ... My confidence took a big boost with this project and I would be very excited to take another class with this instructor."
