Your teacher will address alterations, fitting and mending that is specific to the garments/patterns that students bring to the workshop.

This could include:

How to take in or let out seams.
Adding darts and details to improve fit.
Replacing buttons, zips and closures.
Repairing hems and torn seams.
Help to get your UFOs (un-finished object) pile down!
Discover visible mending, patches and applique.
where to insert fabric features to increase the size of garments.
If you wanted to learn specific mending (eg: a zip), but don't have an item in need of repair, bring along calico or fabric remnants and the supplies needed to do a sample and learn the process.

How much you can achieve in this workshop will depend on your skills, the amount of unpicking required and the extent of the alterations, fitting or mending involved.

This class starts with a review of each student's first garment/pattern. The theory and plan of attack for each student is outlined. Then your teacher will provide students with instructions one-on-one.
