Glenda, I have always loved the gored skirt and it will be wonderful to be able to think outside of the square and use some patchwork fabrics. Winter is on the way where I live and so I would rather be looking forward to the sunshine months later in the year wjen so many more colourful fabrics will be on my mind. Thank you for your present. I will look forward to producing a lovely skirt under your tuition. Ruth Allen.

Most interesting I really enjoyed the whole process. Since I'm short and hippy I have always stayed away from printed fabric. But seeing the prints used for the Patchwork skirt has made me re-think. I enjoyed the class. Only thing left for me to do is make one for me. Thank you.

This sew-a-long was a joy to watch, even for an experienced seamstress. The video shots were clear, enabling the viewer to see exactly what was happening and the position and angles of construction. From the first lesson on, here was nothing ambiguous about any of it. She takes us through the pattern drafting from the finished sloper through drafting all pattern pieces and beyond. Easy to follow and replicate, even for a beginner. Great attention was paid to making certain the viewer missed nothing. In these days of easy access to Youtube instructional videos--as wonderful as they are--Glenda's stand head and shoulders above the rest.
