This was a really good class. I think it could have either been a bit longer or the camera work could have been cut some places to allow for more time for showing how to attach the metal pieces and the finishing portion of the collar trim. I think this class is a good jumping off point for customizing some fashion but would have loved to see some other examples of jackets she has made with things other than patches. Maybe the tshirt back like she talked about, or painting, or something like that.
