She and two young girls make a pair of shorts and demonstrate how to alter the pattern. They also use stabilizing fabric and make an elastic waistband. Nina Kay's sewing topics include using a rotary cutter and mat and making a sweatshirt sweater. For further information, contact the Web site at www.sewyoungsewfun.com.
