    Unusually good sewing skills

    I'm confused if the word 'good' below is an adjective or an adverb. Usually, I'd classify it as an adjective but in the sentence, doesn't 'good' modify the adjective 'sewing'? In thinking this way, I am inclined to think of it as an adverb. Yet, I know that 'good' is an adjective. Kindly help me to understand.

    My aunt has unusually good sewing skills.

    Thank you!

    I think the adjective 'good' modifies the noun 'skills'.
    I am not a teacher.
