Great class - it finally gave me the confidence to tackle patterns. Learnt about gathers, invisible zips, darts, and pockets. Also the order of constructing a dress makes much more sense now! And now I have a beautifully fitting dress with pockets in a print I adore :-) Thanks Danielle for all your tips and wonderfully patient teaching ways.

This class was fantastic. We had a nice small class and Laura, the teacher, was as amazing as ever. It was fantastic to learn new sewing methods building on exisiting skills and classes, not to mention I now have a fantastic new dress that fits me amazingly, learning where and how to measure myself was great to learn also. I love being able to tell people I made the dress and it has pockets!
