Lovely class and the pants look amazing. I'd definitely recommend carefully checking the type of material Thread Den suggest before buying your fabric as those who bought fabric with a lot of stretch struggled. A lovely day and many new skills learnt.

Fantastic class! The instructor was super knowledgeable, patient, and solved problems on the fly. The instructor even stayed a little bit late to make sure everyone left with a wearable garment. Thanks so much!
