The sloper one gets you drafting and making a basic sloper to fit your body.  The other one is a follow on course using the sloper and then learning how to design different types of trousers etc.
Her courses are very good.  She explains things well.
Thanks, at that price too good to miss then.

There's an offer on Craftsy at the moment and seen as I haven't bought one for a while I'm treating myself.

Any recommendations on fitting courses please?  At this stage I'm looking for making alterations to patterns rather than making my own blocks etc.

Is Sara Alm any good?

I like the 'Sewing Shape-wear' course, by Beverly Johnson.

I also like the Susan Khalje courses.  She explains well, and illustrates the couture methods very clearly.

Kenneth D King is always a good bet, as are Pam Howard, Linda Lee and Alison Smith.

I second Alison Smith. I like the way she uses lots of different samples so you see all the different fabrics and techniques. I also like Susan Khalji. I did her couture dressmaking class, which is a lot more chatty in style, but you follow her making one dress from start to finish so you learn more about the overall process of making a whole dress, rather than lots of different techniques.
