Sewing 301 // 5 Weeks // Starts Jan 9

Take it to the next level by learning more advanced construction techniques, and walk away with a beautiful lined dress with shaping elements and a zipper closure. You may choose from an array of styles for this course. Patterns in misses and plus size are offered.
