Laura Renewed My Interest In Retro Clothes!

Very good clear instructions. I initially subscribed to the class for sewing techniques and I was surprised at the level of detail exhibited and how well Laura demonstrated her sewing skills.

I loved this dress so much that I immediately went online and ordered some retro dress patterns. Can't wait for the delivery!

I appreciate the fact that Craftsy has provided many different points of view and it is a privilege to have access to all these professionals who have worked ...

Wonderful Class!!

Laura is a knowledgeable teacher. Step-by-step she describes and shows every detail of the lessons; taking out the frustrating "mystery". Her ability to teach techniques (bust adjustment, etc.) was easy to follow. Vintage style of sewing and knowledge of vintage tools was an added plus! Hopefully, she will offer more classes on Craftsy!! Highly recommend this class and instructor.

what an AMAZING class!!!!!

I just bought the class this weekend and I am half way through and I have to tell you, I have learned so much already! I thought I was getting a class on sewing a vintage dress but I have gotten so much more! The technicques that Laura explains so well, are applicable to any kind of sewing. Now I understand instructions on the pattern that were like Greek to me before. I will look to find more classes by Laura to sign up. Thanks for this fabulous class!!!

I really must say if the people who give classes can just see Laura Nash's video first they would understand how to do a step by step video on how to create an instructional video for a couture dress. This video is so ...
