Tightening the Waist of Pants, Shorts and Skirts
What you'll learn
You currently have pants or shorts in your closet that are too big for you. So you don’t wear them. Or maybe they fit you well everywhere except for the waist. Maybe you’ve lost some weight or your mom sent you some jeans and she was a little off with the size. No worries, because in this class I’m going to be showing you how to make your shorts or pants fit you tighter.

Hey! I’m Gabby. I bought my first sewing machine in 2014 and I’ve been sewing ever since. I learned by watching videos and I’m happy to give back to others who want to do the same.
