Hi there everyone,
I have been thinking about getting a job doing alterations and tailoring at a nearby drycleaners. The other staff are very friendly and the sewing table is right by a large sunny window. But, I do not think I have all the skills I need and I have had trouble finding any print resources or classes where I could learn how to make professional alterations. I also like to find interesting garments and fabrics at thrift shops and remake them into children’s costumes. I believe that if I knew how to make alterations better, I would be more efficient with the costumes.
All the information I have seen in Threads magazine refers to fitting from a pattern. I need to know how to make fittings on ready-to-wear.
Do you have any recommendations for me?
Thank you very much.
