Craftsy.com: Sew a Suit Jacket - Gertie's Latest Online Sewing Class

.
Okay, I now officially love courses 'n' classes! Having signed up for a trouser fitting class yesterday, I have now succumbed to the advertising, and I have signed up for my 3rd Craftsy online class.

I paid via PayPal and the current 50% offer that they are running brings the class price down to $39.99 USD (usually $79.99) - which came out as only £26.32 GBP - a veritable bargain in my book for such a comprehensive class :)!



Yes, the delectable Gertie, of Gertie's New Blog for Better Sewing has come up with her second online sewing class at Craftsy: Sew Retro - The Starlet Suit Jacket.

Now, I may not have started any of my other Craftsy classes, but as they say...
"100% money back guarantee!
Enjoy your class as many times as you want, whenever you want.
Your access never expires. " 
 ... so, they'll always be there for me to access whenever I want!

And, I'm not the only devotee to a sewing class - Dibs and VickiKateMakes have already signed up (as have a few others too).

The course cost includes the pattern for the suit (+ bonus skirt) as designed and drafted by Gertie. You download the pattern in either the Misses size range 2-16 (Bust 32"-46"), or the Plus size range 18-24 (I can't currently see the Bust sizes in the instructions but I assume it's 48"-54"). I think it's fab that the pattern covers such a great range of sizes - giving many sewists the opportunity to take part!

  3. I have just started the Couture dress ( Susan Khaje ) and seriously I LOVE the craftsy platform. It's massive value for money and the fact that it is interactive. I *may* have to do this one at some point too .

  4. Ok...now that you've converted it to £'s...I think I might have to succumb too! lol. It's an amazing pattern and I just love Gertie's yellow version!

    1. How cute would the yellow look with a fine-knit black turtle neck (or polo neck) top and a silk scarf in a graphic black/white print tied round the neck!?

      And for under £30 (when you get the 50% offer prices of course) for a class you can re-visit time, and time again I think it's great value for money.

    1. The thought of a well fitting jacket was too appealing for me to resist too :)

  8. I seem to have signed up for this one too. I have nothing but good things to say about Susan Khalje's class and you are right that it is at a good price with 50% off. I am justifying it by reasoning that the fashion fabrics I plan on using for both Susan's dress class and Gertie's jacket class are already in the stash. So really, Im saving money by stashbusting, yes?

  9. Please let us know how it goes. I almost signed up for the couture dress class but chickened out at the last minute. But I may be tempted again in the future.
