I’d love to take a course that showed my how to alter a pattern to fit various sizes. Many of my dolls are the older Pleasant Co. or Mattel and the current patterns are too tight for them. Also, many of my older store purchased patterns are too large for the newer AG dolls. Adding or subtracting 1/4" all around sometimes helps, but sometimes not.

My favorite course is the one on knits—they always frightened me but I’m getting better with them now thanks to the course and a walking foot for my sewing machine.
