Patternmaking + Design: Creative Necklines

with Suzy Furrer

Class rating

(31 reviews)

rated 5 stars

Another excellent class from Suzy Furrer

For me this class was the best of Suzy's series on drafting patterns. I probably won't make most of my own patterns going forward, but I love knowing how the patterns are drafted. She covers many 'rule of thumb' for setting necklines and matching them to the back, and the lesson on stripes and diagonals was so helpful. Too much to tell but don't have any hesitation if you are interested in this class and series.

Must-have even if you don't plan to draft & get the book

I will post this on every one of Suzy's classes. Seeing how a pattern is drafted is invaluable. If nothing else, it will help you know how to alter an existing pattern. I personally find pattern drafting fascinating, and I have watched these classes many times. Well worth the investment of time and money. Very clear instructions and expert advice. As a note, there is an Android app for a fraction calculator; got mine on Amazon for free. I also use the Pilot Frixion pens for drafting - ...

Awesome class - a must for sewers on any level

By now, I have enrolled in six out of seven Suzy's patternmaking and design classes. They are without doubt among the most useful classes Craftsy offers.

Suzy has a wealth of knowledge and she makes everything understandable explaining not only what but also why. In the discussions, I have seen requests for children's ...

This is class #4 (for those watching at home)

This class has been a wealth of information on necklines. I have purchased all of Suzy's classes and I have learned so much from each one.

The classes in order to this point are Skirt Sloper, Dress Sloper, Creative Darts and Seam Lines then the creative necklines. Each class builds upon the class before. Her explanations about each technique are very detailed.

One of my favorite things I love about Suzy's classes is that she explains the technique then goes into why it ...

And I've taken over 100 now. Suzy Furer is a consummate instructor, she is precise, explains everything so well, and even gives great tips for sewing,
Of ALL the Craftsy classes I have taken, Suzy's classes are by far the most informative. After taking two of her classes (I still need the class on skirts) she's given me so much knowledge as well as the basic tools to draft an amazing array of patterns. More than that, with her step-by-step instructions, I'm drafting my moulage, and can't ...
