Was really looking forward to this class and it didn't disappoint. Before taking the class, I always thought drafting a skirt block (or any block!) seemed rather daunting but not anymore! I've now come away with my own block that I can use for all sorts of patterns :) So excited to crack on with my sewing!

This was a brilliant class. I learned a lot and it worked really well as an online class. The best part though was that we were sent full tutorials afterwards too to remind us what we learned. I wasn't expecting this and was really pleased because it is very well put together, clear instructions with diagrams which is very useful so I'm delighted!
