Is your closet full of clothes you love, but they just don't fit you anymore? Are you tired of throwing out clothes because you don't know how to do a simple repair? Maybe you want to get creative and make new clothes from the old? Then this class is for you. Come learn how to alter and repair your clothes with an expert in the field. We'll start slow by dusting off the sewing machine to get it working efficiently and smoothly. Then you will learn how to hem sleeves and pants, change waist size, repair elastics, add darts for better fit, take in side seems, patch holes, repair seams, change necklines, replace zippers, and more. Class is flexible according to your needs, so bring in your projects and let's learn how to make our wardrobes go farther.
