great class

I enjoyed her no nonsense approach to fitting issues for the "not average" person. There is no point in tip toeing around our shapes, most of us know and have looked in the mirror.

Loved this class!

I first bought Barbara's book, and chose this as my first Craftsy class. I've been through the whole course, and I'll go back and watch it all again. Barbara is very easy to understand, she's straightforward, and I enjoyed her sense of humor. If she ever teaches another course on Craftsy. I'll be one of the first people to sign up for it.
