I'd take that class! I honestly didn't know for many years that you were supposed to do crazy things like pressing seams or checking grain lines. The down side of being self taught...So much of my sewing is haphazard, it's vaguely embarrassing. My mother gave me a sewing machine 8 years ago, showed me how to straight stitch and reverse, and that was it. It was rather similar to my experience learning to drive a manual transmission. ;o)

Well I don't think you are alone... :> That is the way I am with things like draping, fitting and pattern drafting. I know I make lots of mistakes and make more work for myself because I don't really know what I'm doing. I've really been learning the limits of my abilities with these commissions!
