Been sewing for years and haphazardly altered paper patterns. Never knew the how and why and what until taking Suzy's classes. Did everyone see the light bulb go off above my head? I so wish I had learned this when I was young. Great class.

Great Foundations

Thanks to Suzy and the Craftsy team I now have a perfect moulage on my unique dress form. It took several attempts but all my questions were answered as I went along. I am an intermediate level sewer and have always had issues sewing commercial patterns, now I know why, my body shape is very unique now whenever I sew I will always know my finished garment will fit me where it needs to fit.

Thank you so much.

Fantastic Class, Easy To Understand Even For A Newbie!

Suzy teaches very well, explaining things so clearly. I'm a beginner but this class was easy enough for me to follow along. I was able to make a moulage and I'm just adjusting the fit.

Suzy is very approachable, she responds very quickly to queries given the fact that she has to deal with a million other queries from her other classes, this is the mark of a good teacher.

Of course I've now bought all Suzy's classes, and will buy whatever other sewing classes she makes. ...

Great Class

Detailed instructions on creating a good bodice block. Will make size 8 block up first using class measurements as suggested by teacher to get a feel before commencing on my own block. I am looking forward to making clothes that will fit a full bust. Love the
maths involved, normally use metric but will convert to imperial
and use top heavy fraction to divide.

Clear & To The Point. Very helpful and easy to understand. My first tutorial and I'm thrilled with it.
