Class description: Pants can be difficult to fit--no two bodies are alike. In this Level II class we'll take a commercial pants pattern of your choice and alter it to fit and flatter your body. Fly fronts, waistbands, fitting and pockets will also be covered. Bring your choice of pants pattern to the first class and we'll alter the pattern, cut out a muslin to perfect the fit and then cut and sew your pants from fashion fabric.
