Patternmaking Basics: The Bodice Sloper

with Suzy Furrer

Class rating

rated 5 stars

Great class with the best teacher out there!

Wonderful class. I wish I would have had this type of instruction years ago. I have finished my sloper and can hardly wait until I can use it for a future garment. I will take every class Suzy Furrer is teaching.

Excellent personal instructions

I am very impressed by the feedback given by Suzy. The questions section is not just questions, it is individual feedback and very specified advice from Suzy to each student on how to proceed with her project, based on uploaded photos. The recommendations specify in detail how and where to make changes, and asks the student to upload photos of the result until both are satisfied. Excellent!

Top Notch

Being able to be instructed by a professional who is so skilled in teaching how to take a flat piece of fabric and how to add dimension is such a treat. i live hundreds of miles from any metropolitan area that I could even go to a class to learn and I get to watch it and re-watch it whenever I need to. So Thankful for this class

very good class and instructor

For me this was a somewhat difficult class but Suzy is a wonderful and patient instructor. I finished the class and then decided to make another sloper from the beginning. I used this class to make a moulage for my body form in conjunction with the body form class. This class takes patience but it is a good class!

The patternmaking course by Suzy Furrer is absolutely wonderful for me. I have done some (very) basic patternmaking before, but this course helped me understand how commercial patterns are put together. I have avoided darts in the past (don't understand them and don't know how to use them), but this course helped me understand the basis of it, so now I don't feel so scared of them. Suzy's instructions are clear and easy to follow along. Best of all, I appreciate that we can ask questions ...
