Raise your hand if you’ve been here:
• Ugh, these pants are sooo cute, but they’re too long!
• Oh no! The button fell off of my favorite shirt!
• This skirt needs to be a little shorter, if only I had the skills to hem it.
Yup, we’re raising our hands, too.
Being able to make your own alterations to your clothes is an invaluable life skill, and this class, you will learn basic clothing alteration techniques so that you can fix any of your clothes at the drop of a hat! The class will cover hemming techniques, attaching buttons, the original edge jean hem, and seams.
Experience: This class is beginner-friendly. Some previous sewing experience is preferred, but not required.
Materials: Please bring one clothing item that needs a simple hem, button, or seam alteration. There may not be enough time in the class to repair the entire item, but our instructor will give you the fundamentals so that you can finish at home. We will not be repairing holes in this class, so please do not bring something that needs a hole repair.
