Intermediate Sewing: Basic Alterations

  • InterUrban ArtHouse 8001 Conser Street Suite 290 Overland Park, Kansas 66204 (map)

Let’s make your clothes fit! Bring your sewing machine and an item of clothing (or 2) that you need altered, and Ruby Lindell will teach you how to do it, step by step!  Possible alterations could include hemming pants/skirts/dresses, sides in/out, shortening sleeves, etc.  Students will learn expert tips and tricks on how to alter their own clothing, or clothing for a friend!  

Ruby will also provide items for students to practice on if they don’t have anything to bring. During or after class, feel free to share your opinions with Ruby about what you would be interested in learning more about in future classes!  All ages of women and men welcome!
