Every once in a while friends and family ask me for help in fitting or adjusting clothes that are too tight / too wide/ too long etc.
Every time I am offered the opportunity I feel honored as well as excited. Since I never learned to do these tasks in a school or else it is on me to use my own brain and go for trial and error. The result is fitting better every time and I learn alot with every task. The sewing itself isn’t hard at all, on the other hand it is often challenging to find the best solution in order to achieve the intended result.
Latest project was the request to shorten a Scottish skirt. I sure liked the result, so did my friend.
The Overlock makes such tasks easy and the result looks quite well.
