Upcycling Clothes 1S20 CANCELED

Using an existing garment as a base, completely change the design using only the materials you have. Or use fabric from an old garment to make a new one. Bring the garment you wish to upcycle to the first class, then create a custom plan of action for the remaining sessions. Prerequisite: Basic Sewing or equivalent skills.
