Fabric and Fashion

Fabric and FashionHave you ever seen an outfit and wanted it in a different color or style that wasn’t available in the store? Or have you tried on an outfit and needed it hemmed to fit just right? In Fabric and Fashion, you can learn basics like sewing a shirt or putting a zipper on a pair of pants. The advanced units will also teach you how to take the design of your choice and customize it for the perfect look, color and fit.
