SEWING TIPS FROM ALAN:

 

bullet

Buy trousers that have a split band on the back seam, that has an inlay of cloth to let out if you should put on weight.

bullet

If you have anything shortened when new, ask for the pieces that were cut off.  Keep them for safekeeping; you'll never know when you may need them.

bullet

If you have extra long legs, don't bother buying clothing with hyped up prices.  Buy trousers or skirts with turned up hems.  They can be let down to accommodate the extra length required.

bullet

Ask for spare buttons when you buy new clothing and sew them to the inside lining of the garment.

bullet

Try to get clothing altered where you purchase them.  Most quality shops will do this free of charge.

bullet

If your zip tightens after washing, try a little silicone spray.  Most furniture sprays contain silicone.  It works wonders!

bullet

Do not throw out old zipper slides from discarded clothing.  Cut them out.  How many times have you pulled a zipper off in your hand, then lost it?

bullet

In an emergency if your zipper breaks, run it down to the base, then pull it up again and stitch the closed base together tightly to stop it from opening.  Then phone Alan's Alterations at your earliest convenience to have it repaired!
