Pattern drafting basics and so much more

I can't say enough about this and all of Suzy Furrer's classes. I have taken fashion design classes in the past and read several highly recommended books (H. J. Armstrong's among others) and have never had such clear, thorough and concise description of how to pattern draft. The fit I get from my princess seam lines and other dart manipulations are perfect. Every time. I have learned a tremendous amount and apply a new technique every time I draft a new and satisfyingly challenging design. ...

So Good!

This is such a good class and you are such a good teacher which is what really sets your classes apart. I get so much from them and really enjoy watching them. I really would love for you to do a class on sewing/creating designs for knits. Thanks so much for these classes!!

Patternmaking --Another great Craftsy Class

Ms. Furrer: Thank you so much for this enlightening class. Admittedly I am in over my head, but not so much that I do not understand your lessons. I now know how and where so many of the style lines come from and I intend to use your lessons to style and fit existing patterns.

Don't Blink-- You'll Miss Something Good

I've taken my share of classes. With an advanced degree from a major university I've had plenty of experience with instructors. Suzy Furrer is one of the best instructors of any kind that I've ever seen. Having access to her on Craftsy is an incredible opportunity.

She's fast and she's thorough, but she doesn't over-explain. She packs a lot of content in her classes, and a lot of detail. Very often I'll think of a question as she's going along and she'll answer it within a few ...
