Tailoring Ready-to-Wear: Beyond the Basics

with Angela Wolf
Turn tricky alterations into tailored sensations. Use advanced alteration techniques to upgrade pants, skirts, dresses and shirts with an impeccable fit.

Join custom clothier and award-winning sewing instructor Angela Wolf as she builds on her Tailoring Ready-to-Wear class with new, more advanced techniques. Learn to alter pants: make flattering adjustments to the behind and taper legs for a look you love. Learn to let out and extend waistbands and discover fixes for uneven hips. Master dress alterations for a petite waist and demystify hemming from the waist. Diagnose and fix a zipper that's bowing in the back, replace a zipper in the front fly and adjust a hidden zipper in a side seam. Plus, hem cuffs for both women's and men's shirts with confidence. Learn the tailoring skills you need to perfect the fit of your entire wardrobe.

Praise for Angela Wolf's first tailoring class, Tailoring Ready-to-Wear :

"I am only halfway through the classes and I have already learned so many useful tips to make alterations quicker and easier. I especially liked the jeans hemming techniques and the lengthening pants with bias binding. I am going to apply this technique to the school uniforms I lengthen to get the most wear out of them. Angela is a great teacher and explains what she is doing really clearly."
