Finished Chapter 1 Dress Kit measuring and drawing the patterns
by Valerie bishop
This is blowing my socks off! I think I CAN do this! I don't quite have my dress kit yet but I will try and get my measurements done so I'll be ready. I hope to join in on the patchwork skirt SAL! So exciting for sure.
Glenda you are a great presenter! Not too fast and not too slow. Clear directions and I like that you repeated to use a pencil for erasing. I never mind repeated things as I never catch everything the first time.
Thanks so much and I am looking forward to getting back into sewing garments!

Pant Kit Design and Measure
by Marcia Petrus
Quite clear instructions. Good pace. Just enough detail. I feel confident I'll be able to make my sloper successfully.
Only thing that drove me a touch batty was the "Sraddle" on the "Straddle/Crotch" measurement section. I'm sure you've heard this, undoubtedly, a few hundred times. Maybe you have an "Oops" message flash on the screen that I may have missed.
I'm getting really excited about making a great fitting pair of pants. If I'm successful, I'll try it on my sister who has an EXTREME diamond booty and struggles to find pants that fit.

Dress Kit Tutorial

The addition of the online version of the instructional DVD is a fantastic bonus. I no longer have a DVD Drive but I was able to follow along on my iPad as I worked through the instructions. Glenda is a natural on video. She speaks clearly and fluently so it was a pleasure to watch. It is apparent that she is extremely knowledgeable yet her explanations are simple and precise. I find it easier to learn when I can watch the process on video and stop or repeat as needed. I followed along with the written instructions as I watched which gave me a deeper understanding of the process.
Although I have just started my Sure-Fit journey I’m already looking forward to my next design kit.
Thank you Glenda!

I have learnt so much from beginning to the end with Sure -fit designers companion!
by Anne Kelly
Very good. Watch the instructions fully first, then go for it.(don't do what I did and add the button stand to the center front measurements).

AWESOME! AWESOME! AWESOME!!!!!
by ANTONIA SCOTT
Wow! I never thought that creating a pattern for my body type would have been so easy. I am a teacher myself, and I say Glenda the good stitch is an excellent teacher. The videos were easy to follow and straight forward —even a baby could follow. Wow! What an awesome and smart idea. Thank you so much for this program.
How To DVD
by Bridget Fennell
Glenda The Good Stitch takes learning materials that could be overwhelming and translates them into easy to understand directions. I have been sewing for years without really understanding the underlying foundations of this beautiful craft! I bought the streaming video and watch it as many times as I need to in order to master techniques I would never have even considered doing before I found Sure Fit Designs. Moreover, the knowledge transfers to commercial patterns! All of a sudden, “I get it!” and am no longer “stuck” on more difficult tasks! Thanks so much! I just love Sure Fit Designs!

Glenda you have a fantastic way of explaining everything a beginner or even a moderate sewer needs to know. Thank you for a well detailed explanation and easy step by step instructions. Would highly recommend to everyone. It is definitely worth buying the DVDs.

The video's explain everything and doesn't make it confusing, simple but with room to grow and change
Clear concise presentation
by Mary Cavanaugh
Glenda gave a clear, concise presentation that got me solid results on my very bodice pattern. There wasn't one place where I was confused or had to stop and ask questions.
I thought this was a process that would take perhaps a week. Instead it took a few hours (and I'm slow!) My muslin was sewed up and I was amazed at the way it fit.
How-To-DVD - Online Version
by Patricia Palm
I ran across SFD while surfing YouTube for sewing terms I was not familiar with and I am so happy I did. After, watching the many videos on the YouTube Channel, I went to the website and ordered the Pant Kit with the necessary essentials. I just ordered the kit, so I have not worked with it yet, but happy I was able to view the How-To DVD before the kit arrives; now I am even more excited awaiting the arrival of my kit. Glenda is an awesome teacher. Everything is explained in detail, so no need for any follow-up questions. I have never run across any class that I have taken in person or online where I did not have questions. I first began sewing in High School, many, many years ago. I am now retired and decided to take up sewing again. Although, I am familiar with some of the sewing terms, I feel like a beginner, so this is perfect for me. I found a local sewing machine dealer in my area, who allowed me to trade in my old machine for an updated machine, so I am ready. Glenda, thank you so much for sharing your talent with us. xoxo
