Event Overview

So shortening your pants or skirt is a breeze, but what if the waist is too wide? Or that blouse is a bit too roomy? Join us for this class and add some class to your wardrobe with these easy tailoring tricks!

We will review adjusting a waistline with both a waistband and without, how to take in a shirt for a truer fit, how to take in a dress with a waist seam, and a few down and dirty quick tricks for items you need in a hurry!

This class reviews techniques and application, but we do not sew items in class. You will receive a class overview after class with complete techniques for reference.

All materials and machines supplied, for additional questions or class options visit our website at
