What are you most proud of? I'm very proud that I did this type of hemming on jeans which preserved the original hem. Wished I had known about this technique before.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Angela Wolf's class was very helpful. Take your time and do it right. Get more jeans to practice.

was this shortening the pants? My problem is often that I buy the petite and then after a few washings they need lengthening, do you think this class would help me?

This class teaches about hemming, shortening the pants.

I just looked at the class lessons again and she does about 18 minutes about lengthening pants. I guess I didn't bother reading that since I'm always needing to shorten, not lengthen pants.

I am thinking about taking Angela Wolf's class. What I want to learn how to do is shorten a jacket sleeve when the sleeve has a button flap or placket--I don't know the correct term for this. Does Angela's class include this. Thanks for your help. Peggy.

She has a 54 minute segment on shortening sleeves but it's a regular jacket sleeve. You can sign up for the class and try it withing 30 days get a refund if it doesn't suit your needs. Angela's also very good about answering people's questions. Maybe she can answer your question.

I need to know how to make the waistline bigger in a pair of ski pants my husband has. He gained weight!! They have a one piece waistband, no seam at center back. They have velcro tabs at the side waist, but not much room between the top and bottom velcro. I'm thinking of adding elastic between the velcro, but I'm afraid that anything I do is going to be obvious. It's always easier to take in than let out....Do you have any ideas? Love your classes by the way!!
