A few weeks ago, I received an email from Susan Khalje announcing her new online class, The Cocktail Dress. I almost fell off my chair when I read that she was offering the class to me for free. The cost of the class is $120.00, so of course I hopped on the offer and ordered the pattern. There are 3 styles offered in the pattern.
Like many of you, I am trying, not too successfully mind you, to pair down my massive collection of fabric, so I went through my fabrics and decided on this great piece of metallic silk. It's a very bright orange with gold threads running through it.
zebra dress I wore last year. This is not the dress that I intended to make, but it will be lovely and I will use fabric I have rather than purchasing more. I intend to lengthen the dress into a full length gown.
I am very excited about this little endeavor.
Susan is offering 2 free videos on her website which you can find here, http://susankhalje.com/ One is on things to bear in mind when choosing fabric and the other talks about choosing the correct pattern size. Valuable information.
You may remember that I took Susan's French Jacket class a few years ago and created this jacket,
I wanted to take the class and learn the steps involved in making the jacket. It was a labor of love, but well worth it in the end.
So as I work through the cocktail dress videos, I'll show you my progress and give you my thoughts on the course. I can say now, based on past my experience with Susan that yes, the course is $120.00, but well worth the money and time.
