This was the first piece of clothing I've ever made and I can't believe how professional it looks! I've already had heaps of compliments and can't wait to use the pattern to make myself some more similar dresses in different fabrics. Highly recommend this class.

This is a really, really great class. Jen is very knowledgeable, helpful, and can easily teach multiple people with varying experience levels in the same class. This is the third class I've done at Thread Den and all of them have been excellent and strongly focussed on learning and making sure you're happy with what you make. Would recommend :)

This course has it all for learning dressmaking techniques: pattern adjustment to suit your body, darts (so many darts!), invisible zipper, gathers, pockets and setting in sleeves AND you get a gorgeous dress to wear afterwards. I LOVE my dress. Thanks Danielle for your patient tuition.
