A good grounding in how to make a pair of pants that fit. A fun course with loads of scope for personalising the pants with choice of buttons. I changed the opening from right side to left and added cuffs at the hem for a retro look.
Really enjoyed the class as I learned quite a few pro tips from Jen, the teacher. Also used an overlocker for the first time! It was a lot of fun and highly recommended. Jen was great and happy to share all her knowledge.
