This is a one session class: Wednesday, October 23rd, 5-7pm

You know how to seam pieces, pick up stitches, and block your project.  There is still more to learn to perfect your garment. We will talk about collar shaping for best results, neckline refining, 
raglan lines options, modifications of yoke decreases, short rows for darts and better fit, perfect set-in sleeves, cuff options,  perfect buttonholes and button band button placement, and more.
