I'm a professional pianist, working full time as an accompanist. I've been sewing off and on since I was 18. I'm mostly self-taught. The Couture Dress class, along with other classes on Craftsy, along with videos on Threads Insider, has shown me how much more valuable it is to have a master teacher show you each step along the way. It is so much fun to bring the same care and attention to detail that I use with music to sewing. And, as with music, it is the tiny details that mark the difference between the good and the really great.
