Simply Fascinating

I own a lot of craftsy sewing classes and this one is the most interesting one I've ever seen. Watched it all the way through in one afternoon. The instructor is very detailed and thorough and has a great pace throughout the lessons. I love the idea of recreating clothes that I love without taking them apart, especially if they're already delicate and on their last thread. What a cool class!

ABC's of pattern drafting

Stefanie makes it look so easy!! She presents a logical chronological order and systematic approach to dissecting a garment for pattern drafting, then fabricates the muslin, makes necessary fitting adjustments and translates that back to the pattern. Following her sequence, I see no reason why I can't do the same with a favorite garment. Thanks, Stefanie and thanks, Craftsy!!

Good class

You learn to copy existing garments using pins and card stock. The instructor has a very good tone throughout. Copying a blouse is taken as an example here. I am not sure how well it will work out with a worn out garment, seams at the arm would have stretched out of proportion. But the method is simple worth giving a try.I also have her book which describes the same process.

Great Class

The principles of pattern making are very clear, acquiring these skills of generating a pattern from a sewn garment is literally life changing for me , thank you !
