Adjust the Bust - The Complete Guide with Kathleen Cheetam- Craftsy Class Review

Before I review the class, I would like to give you a little background information.
Craftsy is a website that was started a few years ago and it has grown by leaps and bounds.
Ericka posted concerning a class on Craftsy in this post
I clicked on the link and I purchase two classes; Sandra Betzina’s pant fitting  and Susan Khalje couture dress.  Recently Craftsy had a 75% discount on their classes and I took advantage of the sale and purchase  a few more classes.

Adjust the Bust was one of the classes I bought.
The technique of watching the video probably 3-4 times before I started taking notes and working with the  models was a winning combination for me.
The topics that  were covered included but were not limited to:
1. How to fit a full bust and a small bust by adding or subtracting fullness to the bust area
2. How to add the ease included in the pattern to your high bust measurement and use the results purchase a pattern that will fit you in the neck and armhole area. This was a first for me.
3. Princess Seams. my interest was on fitting the bus. I skip this part of the class for another time.
 Kathleen was focus, and methodical. The classes were divide into section and the each section was  sequencially taught.
This class may not be for everyone, depending on your level of sewing . If your level is advance or you enjoy couture sewing, this may not be for you. I don't think a beginner will benefit from this class, it may be too advance. You be the judge. For me it was worth it. And I am looking forward to more classes at Craftsy or an You-Tube. Speaking of You-Tube... more in another post.
