Have a garment you love but something isn't quite right? Maybe it's not the right size or something in the styling just doesn't work for you? Why not alter it? Tailor-extraordinaire, Lauren, will walk you through basic tailoring and alteration techniques to give your garments a new life! Often a slight change and a bit of sewing magic can let you enjoy a garment for many more years to come!

And the best part, you will be working on your own garments! Students can bring an armful of their own garments to class to evaluate and alter with Lauren's advice and help!

Potential Class Topics Include:

  • Altering a garment for a better fit
