Well, that’s the truth! Problem solving tricks abound in this class dedicated to clothes we love to wear as opposed to those that look best on the hanger. Discover to how to "fix" gaping necklines (besides taking in the sides, darts or shoulders), how to add elastic that doesn't gather the neckline but "hugs" it, and super-quick fixes for plunging necklines (why give him dessert when you haven't had dinner yet?). Learn how to execute a perfect reinforced rolled hem on the serger (that prevents present and future rippling or "lettuce leaf" effects) without any added weight, and more. Bonus: Jim’s knock-off tip for hemming an underlined dress/gown (without the traditional hemmed look).
