Every woman needs pants in her wardrobe.
She especially wants pants that are really comfortable!
And she wants them in a fabric that suits her lifestyle and her climate.
So, what if pants like that were easy to fit and sew?
That's what you'll find at this Pant-Fitting Retreat with Louise and Sandy.
You'll learn how to measure yourself properly, how to select the proper size, and how to make any alterations you need.
You'll be guided step-by-step in sewing your pants for the most polished result, and you'll see all the design details that can be added once you've mastered the basics of your own fit and style.
