One of my bust is much larger than the other. also that shoulder appears to be tilted forward. will you be covering these physical distortions

Yes, this will be covered under asymmetric issues. What you will do is choose your size and make initial adjustments such as lengthening or shortening for back waist length. Then, you'll make a mirror copy of both front and back pattern pieces. You'll then be able to do FBA or SBA to one side only.

Hi Kathleen, I am from Sri Lanka. I am looking for a class that teach me how do a proper fitting dress from scratch. Does your class teach so, or does the class focus on adjusting commercial patterns?

Yakooth? From the sewing forum? :-) can't imagine it's anyone else!
