This video, as with all of Glenda's videos, I learn so much. However, I don't feel as comfortable trying to fit a commercial pattern. I love Glenda's designing apparel from Surefit Design Patterns and then copying from that. Patricia Buis pgbuis@yahoo.com

Over and over, I have been taught to make a sloper but no one has ever shown me what to do with it. I have tried through the years, but I have always lost many of the styling features of the commercial pattern I was trying to adapt. Excellent instruction and very practical application! Honestly, this has been one of the most helpful sewing videos I have ever watched. I am very glad that I purchased it.

Glenda does a great presentation and I think for someone with more experience this DVD would make sense. I need more details.
