Dear thread den, I thoroughly enjoyed the class and learnt a lot from Laura’s expertise. Laura was insightful, knowledgeable and encouraging. I am excited to have discovered such a great venue where I can be inspired to create. Kind regards Elena

With the assistance of Jen I was able to successfully make a 1 fifth scale peplum that fitted the mannequin. From what I learnt doing this I was then able to draft a full scale peplum that fits me perfectly. I also worked on several other unfinished projects, such as taking in a dress too big in the waist.. Sew With a Pro is a very useful facilitated workshop. Many of my projects might have remained unfinished without the encouragement and help I have received in this class.
