Altering Ready to Wear
Jen Stern - Instructor: Altering Ready to Wear
2 wks., Weds. evenings, 5:30 - 8:00PM, REMOTE, starting 9/08 ($70)
Get your pile of clothes that need to be altered and join me for Alter Your Ready-to-Wear. During this two session class I’ll guide you through the process of altering your garments for a better fit. Bring Everything to the first class. We will pick a few things to work on in class. Be ready to try things on so I can see how they fit and what needs to be adjusted. Here is a list of some of the things that we can tackle:
- Taking in pants or tops
- Shortening the rise of pants (by bringing up the crotch curve so it’s not hanging too low) • Shortening hems
- Altering shoulder seams for a better fit
- Adding shaping to tops that have too much ease
During the first class we’ll assess what needs to be adjusted and make a plan to fix it. Then you’ll have a week to take out seams and prep the garments to sew during the second class.
