Working away offline.

Hi there everyone,

I’m using my app at the minute, sorry if the placement ain’t quite right! I personally prefer centered text..

So I’ve been sewing away offline as ever. To be honest it’s mostly alterations, which I love so I certainly can’t complain…

There have been cuffs in need of some TLC and a little lengthening required. This was an easy mend to be honest. I went in through the lining for a lovely finish. Good old ladder stitch made for a good finish.

These cuffs were in need of the same job, just not as much lengthening. There will be a time left in these jackets now.

**********************

With summer upon us there is lycra being thrown about! Can I ask…. Is anyone a fan of sewing with this fabric?

That being said, this alteration only required the crotch taken up. And the snap fasteners to be removed. No pain there really!

This bikini was a cross over catastrophe to be honest! Who wants the tan lines or the strain… I then shotrend the strap to make a simple halter neck.

There were a few seams that needed restitching. This bikini cost more than I would like to mention! I feel the construction left so much to be desired! I feel it’s awful big companies can get away with so much, the name doesn’t carry quality workmanship.

So I have heaps more alterations to post about. But I’ll break my posts down!

Have you guys been upto much alterations or mends? I do love to see what everyone else it up too!
