Again a wonderful set of classes and although have been to other classes. This was even better. Came home with perfect dress and extra skills and personalised pattern for more dresses that will fit. Rachel's skills and knowledge are effortlessly given and enjoy these sessions so much. Would recommend them.

Thoroughly enjoyed this course! Very informative when learning about patterns and how to adjust them to fit your measurements. Rachel was very helpful at answering any questions regarding techniques and process along the way. Her step by step teaching was very easy to understand. Looking forward to wearing my finished dress!
