Alterations: Make It Fit At The Waist

Have you noticed that clothes purchased off the rack never fits you quite right. Learn the tricks to better fitting clothes that makes you look and feel great! Through the use of some basic sewing and/or alterations skills you can fill your closet with things you love. 

In this class you will learn how to take in the waist band on pants and jeans.  Sometimes the hips and the waist just don’t match up so you often choose one fit over the other and make the best of it.  Not anymore!  We can turn those pants into something fabulous with a little alternation. Refreshments provided.

What you need to bring from home: Bring along two pair of pants or jeans that the waist is either too big or too small or is somehow off. For example if you are “short waisted” all your pants tend to button too high up on your body. Bring pants that almost sort of fit and let's make them fit.
