    Simple Clothes Alterations

    (12)
    Everyone's needed a clothing alteration - ripped pants, hole in shirt, and the dreaded missing button on those button-fly jeans. Rather than paying a tailor $20-$150, learn how to make your own alterations. This class, by Make, promises to teach you tailoring basics such as hemming (by hand and machine) and simple handsewn replacements, including button replacement and fixing seams. Be sure to bring your own damaged garments because, in this class, your clothes will act as your hands-on demonstration. Now, doesn't this class seem like a good idea?
