Fed up of paying someone else to take up your clothes?
Learn to sew two different types of hem (a ‘turn under’
and ‘invisible’), create darts and make your own alterations while
saving money at the same time.
Practise hems and altering lengths on a trouser leg and then learn
how to alter the width of shirts, tops and dresses by adding darts
(using a practise
fabric to sew darts).
You’ll discover the secrets of how to take perfect measurements, use common and specialist machine stitches and pick up some tricks of the trade from our seasoned alterations professional Sam Moylan. Leave with the sewing techniques to alter and finish your existing wardrobe and any new additions!
