We’ve always had fantasies of making our own clothes. We could whip up little dresses in time for a party and finally have the perfect pair of jeans, all while claiming to people that we only wear couture. But we can barely handle sewing lost buttons onto our coat without filling up with fear and dread. So, we’re seeking professional help – from Brooklyn boutique Flirt’s Home Ec sewing classes (held at 303 3rd Avenue between Carroll and 1st Street.) They’ll teach you embroidery, block printing, appliqué, and there's even a three-session workshop on how to make a skirt. The classes are very reasonably priced – about $40 -$60 per session – and you’re sure to save money on having your clothes repaired and tailored. The class comes just in time for tonight's Project Runway, but if you don't think you'll ever be able to sew a dress out of corn husks, maybe you'll get enough sewing skills to make finger puppets of the Harry Potter characters. --ALISON COOL
