The President of the United States and the media have said that there may not be a turn around to this economic sitaution for at least a year. That means that you have less disposable income with which to live on. Cutting corners whereever possible has never made more sense than now.
You can save alot of money by doing basic alterations yourself. This is especially true if you buy your clothes on sale, at a thrift shop, garage sale or consignment shop. Many of my customers do the same. This site will cover not only the basics, but the more complicated alterations for those of you in business or those who want to do all their own alterations.
I have owned and operated a sewing business from my home since 1988. I began by making bridesmaid dresses and bridal gowns and then switched to alterations. They are not difficult once you know how. So, that’s what we’ll cover, learning how. Once you have done a couple of hems, for instance, it’s like riding a bike. You just practice a few times and you’ve got it down.
I’ll start by teaching you the CORRECT way to hem pants. We”ll also look at hemming jeans, taking in waistlines of pants, skirts and jeans. How would you like to be able to take in the fullness in the legs of your slacks? It seems like there are so many books and websites out there that are incomplete in their instruction. How many times have you tried to hem a pair of pants and ended up with puckering all around the hemline, for example? I’ll show you how to correct that.
I’d love to know what you’d like to learn. Chances are, others want to know it too. You can respond to the comment section below or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
See you soon!
