Learn to alter your clothes and love your body more!
Has your body shape changed? Do you need to fix some old favorites, or want to make thrift store finds into something special?
In this class, you'll learn simple no-sew, easy-sew, and more complex repairs and alterations to make your clothes fit just right. When we're done, you'll have the tools you need to custom fit your clothes to your own shape and style.
Students please provide a working sewing machine and instruction manual, a few pieces of clothing to alter or repair, and scissors, seam ripper, a tape measure, straight pins, safety pins, and marking pencils or chalk.
It is also helpful to either have someone around who can help pin your alterations, and/or a mirror so you can see yourself in the clothing.
Your instructor will provide a link to a basic sewing kit if needed.


This course will be offered via ZOOM (live online instruction). The instructor will provide the ZOOM registration link prior to the course beginning. ZOOM is a free online application.
Fee: $149.00
