"I really enjoyed taking this class. The sisters were fun to listen to and seemed to know what they were talking about. It was a good mix of not being a perfectionist because it IS forgiving knit fabric, and how to still make sure it is a well-fitting, well-sewn garment. They go the extra mile in some instances with pressing and top stitching that I have not previously done, but seeing how much of a difference it made convinced me to start doing it."
