Worth every penny!

I've sewn 2 complete shirts now, both with the help of this class. Both look high end store-bought and fit my boyfriend perfectly! This class teach you how to make a truly professional shirt, inside and out!

An extremely professional class!

This class is worth every penny. I am a novice, but thanks to Pam I was able to make a dress shirt that looks like it was made by a professional. Pam's class is crammed with priceless tips, tricks and techniques that you REALLY need to know. I have learnt so much. Pam's style is professional, calm and informative Do not pass this class up!
