Q&A with SeamstressErin

Scheri Manson asked:
I would like to start with saying that I enjoyed your blog. Wow recycled materials, altered pattern, added a full lining, welt pocket....great job. How was the construction class.
SeamstressErin answered:
Thanks so much! The construction class was great. Lots of information useful for all sorts of different pants. I highly recommend it. (In fact, I'll have a 50% off coupon on my blog for it tomorrow, if you're interested!)
ginochka asked:
After seeing your photos I am tempted to sign up for this class. Did you also take to other pants fitting class that this instructor offers?
SeamstressErin answered:
I did not. I'm already fairly confident at fitting. If you are not, I would highly recommend taking the other class first. This class is all about finishing techniques which there is no point in using if he pants don't fit well.
