Get Mad Crafty And Sew A Mad Men Style Dress With Craftsy.com

How To Make A Bombshell Dress

One of my New Year’s Resolutions is “Get more crafty in my everyday life.” I want to learn how to garden, be able to sew more than a button and maybe knit a hat before winter is done. I always start things a little late, but finding the time to learn the basics of a craft and finding a class that wouldn’t break the bank seemed harder than I thought. Luckily, the Internet is my friend and a partnership between TheGloss and Craftsy.com came just in time! Craftsy gives you the chance to learn crafting like knitting, gardening, sewing and more through step-by-step online videos taught by experts in the field for an affordable price, anytime you want.

I love vintage shopping but finding my size is always a problem, so when I saw a Craftsy class on how to sew a retro bombshell dress taught by seamstress and author Gretchen Hirsch, I was hooked! In Sew Retro, Gretchen teaches you how to assemble and customize the included BurdaStyle dress pattern, create a muslin to check fit and construct a highly tailored garment unique to your body and style. On Craftsy, your course videos will never expire, so you can follow the videos at your own pace and share your creations with other people taking the course on the site. Check out the overview of Gretchen’s class here and get a 40% discount on your enrollment fee — you’ll get to take the class for only $29.99.

After my Mad Men frock is completed, maybe I’ll learn how to start my own garden or knit a lace shawl. With Craftsy the possibilities of new hobbies are endless — and videos keep getting updated.

    This article is a nice because learning skills can be expensive and certain men like myself can become the center of attention instead of learning in class. Even if the attention is only from accusations of being a dirty minded old man it still interferes with classwork.
