Custom Sewing eCourses
for the Sew-Curious

SMARTY PANTS

SMARTY PANTS is a new eCourse exclusively for Skirt Skills alums.

Get some new experience under your belt! You’ll get the same ongoing access to the high quality content and support as I offer in Skirt Skills, only this time…

We’ll make three pants blocks while learning to create all kinds of custom-fit styles- from loungewear to jeans.

Follow along as I design and handcraft three new pair of pants for myself from start to finish- sharing new mix-and-match construction techniques. Choose your favorite block, design features, and construction methods to start and complete your own custom pants!

Also- Our interactive Group is our own private Mighty Network called “The Collaboratory” (not on Facebook). I think you’ll really dig it… 

Smarty Pants builds upon everything learned and created in Skirt Skills.
