This is a 3-part class will covering essential tailoring techniques that will help you achieve a better fit. Sometimes it’s hard to know what is possible and what simply can’t be done to a garment.

Have you ever wished you could tailor your own clothes? Do you love garments in your wardrobe but have stopped wearing them as they just don’t fit anymore? Do you attempt to tailor clothes for yourself and your family with mixed results?  Let us show you the simple tailoring techniques that we know to help you get a custom fit for the clothes in your wardrobe!

Learning Outcomes:

  • Basic tailoring vocabulary
  • Tips according to what fabrics you are working with
  • Tips for unpicking seams
  • Helpful tools you’ll need to tailor at home
  • Taking in & letting out
  • Pin and transfer markings
  • Altering shoulders & armholes
  • Pant tapering – learn how to pin and alter the cut of your pants

Skill requirements: You must have sewing machine sewing experience to take part in this workshop.

Material requirements: This workshop is a mix of demonstration and hands-on practice. We welcome you to bring in garments from your own wardrobe that you would like to alter.

Equipment requirements: Please note that we provide a sewing machine for you to use in the studio, but you are more than welcome to bring your machine from home. If you’d like to bring your home machine, please remember to bring the manual (and foot pedal/power cord).
