Glad I Gave This Class a Chance

I was concerned by the negative reviews but eager to hear what Joan McGowan-Michael had to say about feminine fit since I have long admired her garments. Yes, this class is short but I think it covered the basics well and I certainly feel I got my money's worth (as usual, I waited for a sale). Being an intermediate knitter and having some experience with pattern drafting for garment sewing, I could easily relate to the concepts she presented and I am eager to get started on my shapely tee.

From "Oh, you made that?" to "You MADE that!?!"

I took the Craftsy class, “Feminine Fit: Bust Shaping Techniques” taught by Joan McGowan-Michael. I blitzed through the entire course one morning because it was incredible. I need to go back and rewatch it so I can apply what I leaned.

Life Changing Class

This is a gem of a class. McGowan-Michael shares her vast experience in the clothing industry and as a knitwear designer. Her comfortable and clear delivery of detailed information, makes "sitting a the feet of the master", a pleasure.

Not For Beginners

This is a class for the experienced knitter who already know the basics. So do not choose this class if you are just getting started. Craftsy has several classes with introductions on how to fit garments, this is not one of them. If you expect a step-by-step walk-through on how to fit a garment you will be disapointed with this class.
For the experienced knitter this class has several good pointers that are not covered in some of those other classes.
