Lost weight and want to take in the waist of your favourite skirt? Got young children going through a growth spurt and planning to buy clothes that are a little too big to eke out their usefulness? Want to change a collar on a favourite item to something more fashionable? Buying clothes that fit exactly as we'd like them to is a familiar dream to many. Others of us hoard clothing items that we love in the hope that we might wear those items again one day. With the help of The Sewing Bible, a step-by-step practical guide to altering clothes, you'll learn a whole array of clever skills to alter your clothes like a professional, but at minimal cost. Starting with the most common and easiest alteration, shortening trousers, and working towards the most technically challenging, shortening the sleeves on a lined jacket, this ultimate guide will take you through every stage of clothing alteration in easy-to-follow steps.
