Not Much Confidence in Your DIY Skills? Try a Class – Online!

The lovely girls of A Beautiful Mess, who run the vintage boutique Red Velvet, are offering a DIY Dress Up e-Course where you can learn sewing techniques to help you make a variety of projects.  From a headband to a stylish bag to even drafting your own patterns for a dress that fits you perfectly – the course is organized into 17 “sessions” on a private, password-protected blog.  You can take this course any time, 24/7, to view the in-depth photo tutorials for each session.  In the tutorials they instruct you on utilizing your sewing machine to its fullest, thinking like a designer in designing your DIY pieces, reading patterns, and making many items to add to your closet.  And the cost?  A mere $29!

They’ve posted a FAQ here as well.

So here’s a question for all of you: do you believe reading a blog series online would be beneficial in upping your DIY skills?  Or do you feel the online format would not be able to provide enough of the assistance necessary?  Or perhaps that photo tutorials on blogs are a dime a dozen and that all of these techniques could be learned elsewhere?

Discuss!  Is this the future of DIY classes?
