Gold standard!

Wow! A gold standard class taught by a gold standard teacher! This is a most comprehensive course on drafting your own skirt patterns. I have learned so much & found the entire process to be exciting & enjoyable. It is such a wonderful class that I am going to purchase Suzy's other pattern-making classes. Many thanks Suzy!

Fantastic, Understandable Instruction

What a useful class. Starting from the bottom up to build a sloper has really helped me understand fit and how a 2 dimensional paper pattern relates to a 3 dimensional body.

Back Dart

Hi Suzy. My dart width is 3/8" therefore do I omit the back dart because of the back seam 3/8" we drew in to prevent the trampoline effect you mentioned.? I'm finding it easier to work in both metric and imperial to obtain more accurate measurements. The fractions are doing my head in.

Great class

I had attempted to make clothes in the past with less than desirable results. Lets say very poor results. I don't think I ever wore one item I ever made. This class and her bodice sloper and pants sloper classes have taught me so much. I can't begin to tell you how much I have learned and I have not even been through the entire class yet. Exceptional classes. Extremely satisfied
