This was a great class. I have made several of these skirts with the class and I can go back to it again and again to help me put in a zipper of do a hem on any garment. The teacher was so easy to understand. She explained the techniques so easily and showed how to correct a simple mistake that can easily happen when making the skirt. I would love more classes taught by her.

Sew Ready: Garment Basic

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.
