Re-engineering Garments that Do Not Fit with Wilhelmine Peers
Many garments, made or purchased, often have a problem to begin with and do not get worn because of that. This class is designed to take the fear out of re-designing, re-envisioning, retro-fitting, adding and even cutting! Garments can have all kinds of problems, and most of the time re-engineering can be quite effortless. If too short, stitches can be picked up and the garment lengthened, or fringe can be applied to the bottom. If too large, it might lend itself to pleats or steeking. All techniques discussed will be demonstrated and applied by participants to their swatches. The results are awe inspiring!
Bring yarn used for swatches and a contrasting-colored yarn.
Sharp scissors, notebook, pen or pencil with an eraser, stitch markers, blunt tapestry needles (large and small), flexible tape measure, small calculator, and needles & crochet hooks of various sizes.
Four 6"x6" swatches to demonstrate and try out the techniques discussed.
