Are you disappointed in the fit of your dress pants? Join Ron in a 2-day pant fitting workshop! Discover how to identify and correct your fitting problems, then you’ll alter your pattern to make these adjustments. Learn how to create a smooth, clean silhouette for a flatter looking stomach, and the world’s best fly front technique so the zipper won’t be exposed at the centre front of the pants! Ron will share these and other “secrets” with you!
