You will discover a variety of modifications and fabric manipulation techniques in order to alter length and to create different necklines and pocket styles. This class is ideally suited for handweavers and textile lovers, however simple patterns offer easy entry to those sewing clothes for the first time. This class is open to all skill levels, however previous experience using a sewing machine is required.
