A few weeks ago Craftsy contacted me asking if I’d be interested to watch and review their new class: Sandra Betzina’s Pant Fitting Techniques. I was thrilled. I was fighting with pant patterns for some time now and I wanted to learn how to make a great fitting basic trouser. I’ve made lots of shorts in the past, but never tried a classic trouser before. I felt like I didn’t know what to do with it in case it didn’t fit perfectly as it was.
And wow – I loved the class. I am only half way through, but I couldn’t help it and I made a muslin already. Eeerm, it turned out huge and weird. So I will get back to watching the rest of the class and then come back here with a review.
I was surprised by the quality of the videos and the amount of useful info the course teacher is giving away. There is a preview of some of the material in this class so you can take a look if you don’t want to wait for my review.
One of my plans this winter is to learn how to sew classic shirts. I already got the pattern, but I when I saw this other Craftsy class that tackled the whole how-to I just went on and bought it.
The third class I am planning to get is this 101 Serging class. I’ve bought a serger a few month ago (love it:D) but I never got past the basic hem stitch. Oops.
So, what are you learning next?
