I've just logged into Craftsy this morning to post a project and I found that ALL of their courses are on sale at just $19.99. Some normally sell for $49.99, so that is a huge 60% off.
I've signed up for the Couture Dress class here. I want to learn more about making and fitting a muslin, making changes to patterns to get a better fit and style, and about how to make the inside of my sewing look as good as the outside, lining dresses etc.
“Stop searching the ready-to-wear racks and learn how to sew a dress that fits like a dream! Award-winning couturier, author and television personality Susan Khalje will show you how to make a dress in this Craftsy class.
Once Susan teaches you essential couture sewing techniques, you will have the skills to adapt the included Vogue pattern to create whatever dress you need – a swingy summer sleeveless, a classic winter-weight sheath with three-quarter sleeves or an elegant cocktail dress in seasonless black lace.
What You’ll Learn:
- Muslin construction
- Fit adjustment techniques
- How to hand-stitch perfect hems
- Pattern customization strategies
What You’ll Make – A couture dress custom fit to your size and style
If this doesn't interest you, I can certainly recommend these courses I've taken:
Sewing with Knits – My projects so far = Fleece hoodie – Scoop neck Tee – Fabulous fit every day t-shirts. Projects still to make, v neck t-shirt, shorts, skirt, yoga pants and dress. So much in this course!
Or want to improve your photography for your website or Etsy store – sign up to Shoot It – Product Photography. This course made such a difference to the photos in my bath and body Etsy store – I've not yet changed them all out and updated the listings, but already the shop looks so much better and sales have increased. Highly recommended.
There are SO many great courses to try and this price can't be beaten for the unlimited lifetime access, forums etc. You can find more Craftsy course inspiration on sewing and quilting courses on my Video Tutorials page. Enjoy and do share links to what you make!
Hmm, that's a thought – maybe I should start a new Group Board on Pinterest where we can all share what we make and get some publicity? What do you think – a good idea? Would you participate?
