What happens in this class?

We all have items in our wardrobe that we like but for some reason, we don’t wear them. Why is that? Maybe they are a bit tight, too big, or too long.

I really enjoyed this course. I was a bit nervous about attending as I was out of practice using the sewing machine and not sewn for a while. Monika totally put me and the other attendee at ease and we went through lots of useful information to help guide our decisions. At the second day of the class, I brought some additional items with me to discuss and overall between the two sessions I altered a skirt and a top that had been hanging in the wardrobe not being worn for years! Both are now much better and more usable and I am looking forward to wearing them again. I would definitely attend further classes with Remode Collective.
