Wedding Dress Alteration Tips
2008-05-23 09:12:00
It seems I've had an small blog break. My brain isn't working as it should be!Anyway, I managed to find something useful on altering wedding dresses.By Sarah on wedding dress alterationsIf you’re purchasing your dress in a bridal boutique, or even purchasing it on the Internet, then most likely you’re looking at having to have some wedding dress alterations done. It seems that some wedding dresses need a major overhaul once they’re purchased to be able to tailor them to a particular person’s body type, which can be a lot of work for a seamstress.

Even if what you only need to have done is to take up the dress so it isn’t too long, then you’ll want to pay attention to some of these tried and true tips for making sure you get it done right the first time. Here is some great advice for taking care of your wedding dress alterations.Read More.....

Look Your Best at the Beach or in Pilates Class by Sewing Your Own Swimsuit
2007-12-17 08:12:00
A wide range of pattern styles is available. Styles with princess seams are slenderizing. So are patterns with a center panel of a contrasting color; to minimize hips, use a dark color for the side panels. High-cut leg openings on swimsuits and leotards give the appearance of longer legs and a slimmer torso. For a full-busted figure, choose a pattern with a bustline shaped by darts or seams. To fill out a slender figure, use a pattern with shirring, draping, or ruffles. Or choose a simple pattern style and a splashy printed fabric to enhance a slender figure.By sewing your own swimsuits and leotards, you can make garments that meet your needs. Add a full-front lining to a swimsuit, if desired; this is especially important for light-colored and lightweight fabrics. Or you may line just the crotch area or add a bandeau lining in the bust area. Purchased bra cups may be sewn into the bandeau if firmer support is desired.Two-way stretch fabric stretches to fit the contours of many diffe...

Easy Sewing Pattern Alteration for Full Hips
2007-12-17 08:10:00
You might think so, but it could be one of two things: large hips or a small waist. A quick look in the mirror will tell the story. If your hips are large in proportion to the upper part of your body, then full hips are the problem. If your hips are in proportion to the upper part of the body, but the waist appears small, then the problem lies in your waist. If your waist is small, the garment's waist can be reduced by increasing the width of darts and pleats. If your hips are large, the pattern needs to be increased at the side seam in the hip area.Read More...

For Those Of You Who Put On 30 Pounds Overnight
2007-08-31 08:08:00
We've all been there before; that Thanksgiving or Christmas day where we promised ourselves not to eat too much (and it had to be on the day when the best tasting food and those irresistible desserts come out! :-)), we end up eating enough to last us a week in hibernation. When you wake up eventually, you find that your clothes are so tight around your waist that you gotta fit yourself in your pants with a crowbar (I had to get someone to give me a bear hug; hey it was Christmas!), and even then you have to hope to every god that your pot belly doesn't relax and breaks your button and flings it to the other side of the room (I'm sure these days that would be considered a lethal weapon), and Lord help you if you try to bend over in those pants.Now there you are holding your pants or skirt you paid good money for, about to throw in the heap telling yourself 'I'll buy the next size up'. Can this all-powerful problem be remedied? What to do, what to do! Well lucky for you I've e...

Custom Tailoring in New York
2007-05-28 08:22:00
Custom Tailoring seemingly needs more professional refinement than simple tailoring. At least that’s what I feel. And whenever I buy a readymade garment, I always need to go for alteration, thanks to my short height. Whether it’s a suit or a tracksuit, I always need to cut it into size. In my perception Hugo's Custom Alterations is one of the best custom tailors in New York . Ofcourse there are many others which are good at clothing alterations. But I have personal experience about Hugo’s. And I am really satisfied. Whatever may be the type of dress alterations, I have always got good service from them. I first came to know about them from the site www.alterations.com, while searching for a suitable tailoring shop in my residential area in the New York city. Since then I am in love with them.

Getting correct clothing alterations tips is always a problem. In fact sometimes it is dangerous. Because faulty clothing alterations can spoil your favorite cloth. And therefore you must be careful while choosing the right tailor. My friend had given his wedding dress for tailoring. He was supposed to wear it in the party to celebrate his first wedding anniversary, to add to its emotional value ofcourse. But unfortunately the wedding dress alternations were so bad that he had to drop the plan. And it’s not that the suit was unfit for wearing on that day. Rather it got permanently unusable. The best idea is to collect information about the good and dependable tailors in your area. And a sure shot way for that is to go for the site www.alterations.com. It will give you a flawless information about the high skilled tailors in your area, or whatever area it may be. It’s database covers the entire USA.
