Classes Included

Tailoring Ready-to-Wear (5h 40m)
Ready-to-wear shouldn’t be “ready-to-swear.” Learn to make your own basic alterations to store-bought clothing, including lengthening and shortening hems, altering waistbands, replacing zippers, tapering tops and more. Angela will give you step-by-step instruction on simple techniques you’ll be able to use in all your future tailoring projects.

Tailoring Ready-to-Wear: Beyond the Basics (3h 34m)
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.

Tailoring Ready-to-Wear: The Jacket (3h 07m)
Upgrade ready-to-wear and home-sewn jackets with tailoring lessons from alterations expert Angela Wolf. Discover the secrets of ready-to-wear jacket construction as you go inside the seams, and find out how to tell whether or not a jacket can be altered. Use the petite adjustment to remove side-seam wrinkles. Raise shoulders for perfect seam placement and jacket sleeves for a better fit through the arms. Take in side seams, center-back and princess seams for a better fit and a slenderizing look. Hem lined jackets from the bottom for the length you want. Plus, hem sleeves from the shoulder to preserve buttonholes or embroidery decorations. Get comfortable identifying fit issues and tailoring jackets to look and feel custom-made.
