Hemming hemming hemming

Hello there peeps!

How is everyone?

So it’s been quite of late around here BUT I am supper busy. So busy I’m forgetting to post!

So what’s keeping me so busy?!? Well alterations are pretty high on the list! Make do and mend and all that jazz.

There’s the hemming of trousers, I love the simple ones but note to self…. Learn how to use the blind hem foot! Hand stitching is soooo time consuming!

There’s been a couple of waist alterations too.. Letting out the seams, this can seem a little scary at first but to be honest, I’m becoming a dab hand at them! I have another pair of trousers in the list but they are to be taken in.

So I have recently ventured in to the world of stretch fabric alterations… And with my new machine it’s a breeze, So neat and tidy!

This is a dress I bought from river island, I had to take it in at the waist… In so happy with the end result! And it was a measly £10 in the sale… Gotta love a bargain!

So have you been altering much lately?!? Do share!
