Broken zipper on your favourite pants? You waited for months for the online bought dress, but turns out it doesn’t fit you? Is your favourite shirt ripped or has a non-washable spot? Or maybe your jeans sit perfectly in you but appear to be too long?

If you've found yourself in this situation before, welcome to the club! There are so many times when a button pops off or a seam starts to unravel and we are left wondering how to fix it.

We have prepared a new alteration course for you, that you will never find anywhere else in WA!

Complete our beginner's alteration course and learn how to easily fix your clothes using hand stitching or a sewing machine, which we are sure you have somewhere in your house covered in dust because you don’t know how to use it!

Don’t worry about that either, because we will teach you how to use your sewing machine as well!
Completing this course once, sounds much better than regularly spending heaps of money on clothes alteration, doesn’t it?

This short alteration course employs learning how to:

  • Correctly use your sewing machine
  • Process the bottom of the garment
  • Repair seams, and make patches and stitches
  • Increase or decrease the size along the waist
  • Replace zippers

We're going to show you all the steps in this course, and you can start fixing your clothes right now!

In the first two lessons, where you'll dive into the art of garment alterations—mastering over six types of modifications for bottom garments. Whether it's tailored trousers, beloved jeans, delicate dresses, or even that knit T-shirt waiting for a perfect fit—perhaps you have curtains in need of shortening—we've got you covered! Additionally, you'll unravel the secrets of zipper replacements, ensuring a flawless fit that complements your figure perfectly.

In the third and fourth lessons, we encourage you to bring along a project that requires fixing. This hands-on approach allows you to focus on precisely what intrigues you most. Dive deep into the intricacies of altering garments that matter to you, ensuring a truly customized and rewarding learning experience.

There are no more than 4 people in a group. Also if you have any related questions we will try to answer them.
