22 November 2016 • Belted Wrap Skirt Sewing Workshop ✄

I went to this class as a refresher to help me get back into sewing and it was perfect. A really nice, simple class that reintroduced me to using the overlocker, understitching, and sewing button holes. Jen was super helpful and patient and I left with a great skirt that I will get plenty of wear out of over Summer.
