If I had more skills it would be perfect. My inabilities to do basic things was a problem in completing my project. I do think I will be able to alter tops a bit better with the techniques given. It was a good class but maybe too short.

I felt that it was very basic (Good for the people in the class with no prior sewing knowledge. Bad for me because I did have prior, though rusty, sewing knowledge). I took the class hoping to learn some new techniques but I really didn't feel that I learned anything new. Exposure to the serger was interesting but if you don't have one at home, was it really a meaningful technique for most of the people in the class?
