A Pattern Alteration Workshop that meets 4 times

Imagine it! Make it! Use the techniques we learn in this book to make any pattern just a starting point because you'll have the skills to customize a pattern for you or someone you love. In graduate school, Virginia learned to make quarter size garments so if you don't have a small human to sew for, think of this as your quarter size project. A great way to learn pattern alterations without tons of yardage.

Limited to 4 students (16 yrs of age or older); 50% enrollment required for class to meet. If a class is cancelled due to low enrollment, you will receive a full refund.
