Who Knew It Could Be Done?

This is one of the best classes I have taken from Craftsy! Like others, I watched the entire class in one day. It was that fascinating. Stefanie is an excellent teacher and she explains things clearly and carefully making you feel certain that you can certainly make a pattern of your favorite garment. I liked how just when you started to panic and think "wait, what about..?" Stefanie would pop in with an explanation about how that question would be answered in a few moments. She ...

Highly recommended!

This is my second review because I have finally used what I have learnt in this class!

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!!
