by Michelle - July 2016

Majorie is very knowledgeable. She explains slowly and goes at each persons pace, however long it takes. The finish with each garment /outfit, would stand up to anything. You could see my clothes at a high end store. now i can make my own clothes. I will update at the 12th lesson to chart my progress.
