Wow! Excellent class even if you have no interest in 50s vintage

I only purchased this class in hopes of learning how to install a side zipper that would be comfortable to wear. But, I got so many sewing techniques from Laura above and beyond the side zipper. I never even heard of a sewing awl until this class. Now it's an indispensable tool for me! Additionally, I REALLY appreciate it when the instructor actually sews on camera.

Super cute dress, and I learned a ton!

I was a little intimidated when I first took this class, but Laura was a truly wonderful instructor. She takes you through everything step by step, and gives some interesting tidbits about vintage sewing along the way.

For me, this was the first project I've ever tried to really fit (full bust adjustment, etc). Laura was incredibly patient, helpful, and encouraging as I went through what felt like a billion muslins.

I would love to see her teach more classes!

Vintage Delight

Laura is a delight to watch as she educates the viewer on vintage designs, tools and tricks of the trade. She is well spoken, organized and a great teacher.

Every step of the process to make this dress is covered as well as great tips on fitting. I love the addition of the petticoat lesson! What a nice touch to round off this vintage experience.
