A course entirely dedicated to learning how to repair holes, shorten, lengthen, taper or enlarge your clothes using a domestic sewing machine. The first three lessons are devoted to making exercices on samples which will allow you to get acquainted with the most common repair and retouching techniques. Afterwards, we will apply this new knowledge to fixing your own clothes!
Lesson 1: Basic Theory and Repairing holes. Darning on a sewing machine, applying patches, replacing worn-out areas, repairing holes by hand, how to rip effectively.
Lesson 2: Lengthening & shortening. Hemming jeans, T-shirts, sewing invisible hems and adding stretch cuffs.
Lesson 3: Tapering and Enlarging. Making a garment smaller or bigger using existing features. Taking in or letting out seams, adding darts, or cinching pants at the waist without having to reinvent everything.
Lessons 4 & 5: Open projects. It's time to repair and fix your own clothes! We will help you to select the repairs and modifications that will allow you to put your new knowledge into practice and save your clothes!
