Step By Step Instructions

I have really enjoyed this class. The pattern is simple and perfect for someone like me who is new to sewing. It's easy to follow along the step by step instructions.

Useful, clear, realistic

I very much enjoyed this class - I made two skirts in order to practice the traditional waistband and faced waist. Brett's instructions were clear, concise, and very helpful.

I am not a beginner sewer. I've been sewing for a long time, however, I enjoyed the class because it serves as a refresher course and there is always something to learn.

Favourite Craftsy class so far

I'm a beginner sewer and have enrolled in a number of classes. This has been my favourite class so far; I've really enjoyed Brett's approach, encouragement and easy-going style.

Thanks Brett, and I love my skirts!!

Great class!

I have been sewing for years, but I have to be honest , and say I actually learned some specific techniques while taking this class. It is a good foundational class that I think everyone who is self taught or learned from a home ec. class etc. will realize you've been sewing certain things wrong, or leaving them out. Seriously it's really an easy basic class , but I did find out I was not sewing certain things right or just skipping unintentionally over a whole STEP!! It's a GREAT REFRESHER ...
