"This was the class I had been waiting for on Craftsy – and Prof. King did not disappoint. A gentle introduction to tailoring and pattern alteration – Prof. King explained the tailoring techniques in a clear and easy to execute manner. The volume of information and tips contained in this class make it an excellent value. Best of all, it enabled me to complete my coat projects that have been in my head for a year without a clue on how to start on collars and sleeve shaping . I would love to see more from Prof. King."
