Game Changer

This class is fantastic! Since taking this class I have made 3 pairs of pants, put in my first welt pockets, and now my invisible zippers are really invisible!

I love learning on my own schedule and reviewing difficult concepts until I get it. ...

Just the little things make the difference. No more elastics going their own ...

Very Comprehensive

This is one of the most comprehensive classes I have taken on Craftsy. Take a look at the lesson descriptions. She goes through design and construction. You probably should be an advanced beginner. I am and I can understand what she is teaching. This is the type of class I will be using for years to come, as a reference. I like that she teaches so many pocket styles. Something new to me is the hidden zipper with waistline facing. Such a great technique. She also teaches an easier fly zipper. A ...
