Altering Old Clothing Into New Outfits
This is a guide about altering old clothing into new clothes. You can reuse many of those clothes you were thinking of getting rid of, with some do-it-yourself alterations.
Use Vinegar When Lengthening Garments
Sometimes when you lengthen a garment the crease line from the previous hem remains. The way to get rid of that is to moisten the crease with vinegar, and iron on the hottest setting allowable for the fabric. I always use a press cloth to protect the fabric.
Altering Clothes to Fit More Snuggly
You ever have clothes that you wish were a size or two smaller? This tip is what I do to all my clothes that I want them to fit snug.
Lengthening a Dress
So I found a really cute dress at a super great price the other day. The only problem is it is way too short! I couldn't find another one. This was too cute to pass up, so I decided I would get it anyway and fix it myself. It was very quick, very easy, and now I get to wear my dress.
If your jeans need adjusting it is best to hem them properly after sizing. This is a guide about hemming jeans.
I had a special occasion coming up and wanted a new dress. Budget was quite tight so I decided to make my own from clothes I already had. I had 2 items that I had purchased for only a couple bucks from a thrift shop. I decided to cut them up and make them into something new.
Altering a Blouse
I'm almost 8 months pregnant and I picked up a fabulous floral cotton blouse at a flea market. It fits wonderfully across my tummy with room to grow, but it gapes under my arms and there seems to be too much fabric around the neckline/bust if that makes sense. How can I make it fit better?
Making a Blouse Bigger
I ordered 4 blouses online, and it turned out to be the wrong size. It's 6x which is the largest size they had. I'm 16 years old and would like to know how could I make the blouse bigger for me? The fabric is cotton and polyester. Please someone help.
Altering Spaghetti Straps on Blouse
I have a blouse that that has spaghetti straps on each side of a top under it. The problem is that the wide bra where you fasten it in back, shows above the back of the shirt. How do I alter it so it won't show?
Altering a Blouse to Make It Form Fitting
My daughter bought a pretty blouse, but it was too big on the sides of the blouse. How do I alter the sides with a sewing machine to make it form fitting? I am a beginner on sewing so if you can make it easy to understand that would be helpful.
Making a Men's T-shirt Fit a Woman
I am not a straight line, I'm a curvy person. The men's medium tees always fit my top area, but when I get down to the hip and stomach area they are too tight. How can I make the shirt more feminine looking and have it fit my stomach area better?
Shortening the Sleeves on a Long Sleeve Shirt
My husband's long sleeve shirts are always too long. Is it possible to shorten the sleeves myself?
