Thank you

I learned in the very first part that I'm not an apple at all! I'm a pear with a less defined waist. She is so thorough and makes the whole process seem much simpler than I had thought it could be. Thank you so much!

Really enjoyed this class on Plus size fitting.

Thanks Barbara, i really enjoyed the classes. I have watched each and every one in turn, and am eagerly awaiting the pattern in the mail. There is a lot of useful information. It's great knowing i can come back and watch as many times as i like. I also enjoyed your great sense of humour and direct and down to earth approach. Will do another re-run when the pattern arrives. Thanks so much and best regards.

Fabulous class. I would suggest anyone who needs plus size adjustments take this course

I can't thank Barbara Decker enough for the straight forward information for increasing and adjusting my patterns to fit. I have had this course for three months now and before I touched pattern or fabric I watched this class twice to make sure I had a good understanding of what I was doing.

I have been sewing for over fifty years but sewing to fit myself was more than a struggle. I had actually given up. I am 5ft 7inches tall so everything has to be lengthened - three inches ...

Great Advice On Fitting

Barbara provides lots of practical guidance on adjusting patterns to get the right fit. The lesson on adjusting for a large abdomen was particularly enlightening. Best explanation on darts! I have very narrow shoulders, short waist and large waist and bottom. With Craftsy classes I have been able to make tops and dresses that fit.

The best class ever!!!!!

Thank you so much for this course. Learning to adjust for larger bust has made sewing dresses and blouses so much less frustrating and fun again. The whole course is packed with great information. Thank You.
