What will I make: Alter your own garment
Are there things in your wardrobe that you don’t wear because they need some slight adjustment? This clothing alteration class will give you all the basic skills to alter or repair your clothes. This is a great way to save money and prolong the life of your clothing. You might need to take up or let down hems to lengthen or shorten a garment and how let out or take in seams to fit. Perhaps you need to replace broken zips in skirts, trousers or jeans? You can also use this class to remake and restyle a favourite garment or vintage piece.
Is this course right for me?
This class is not suitable for beginners. You will need to have a good knowledge and confidence when using a sewing a machine. You will have made simple garments in the past. Please note: this is not a private lesson and you should be able to follow basic instructions and work independently.
What do I need to bring?
You'll need to bring along two or more articles of clothing you'd like to alter and matching thread and we'll work through them together. Please do not bring items that are above you level of expertise or very expensive to practice on. You may bring projects already pinned and ready to go.
