This class was absolutely amazing, I came with little drawing skills and left motivated and inspired to take more classes and learn even more about illustration and fashion design. I really appreciated this class and the instructor! Totally worth attending this class

Teacher really knowledgable and passed a lot of good information to us. Thoroughly enjoyed the class. My only suggestion for improvements would be a short summary of the steps as a take away. We received a list of supplies and measuring chart, but not an specific review on how to repeat. I would recommend teacher and class.

This was a truly great class. My sewing skills were a little rustier than I thought, but the instructor was gracious enough to meet me at my level. The class was also super small - only 3 people so there was a lot of one on one attention, we got to shape the class a little and I learned a ton! I wish I would have had more time to prep and bring in the appropriate items to alter - I probably would have learned more, but that’s on me! We worked on shortening pants, taking in pants that are too wide in both the leg and the waist, taking in shirts that were too wide, shortening sleeves that are too long, installing different kinds of zippers, fixing zippers, and patching holes. All very useful! Also, if I were to do it over again, I would be sure to bring snacks and eat better beforehand. The 4 hours of class catch up to you especially if you are prone to hanger ;)

I was in a car accident and not able to make the class & my money was not refunded. It was an extenuating circumstance and doesn’t make me feel good about a company who doesn’t make an exception when someone has been in an accident.
