  Our guide to the best books to learn the basic sewing and alteration skills you need to customize your clothing from low impact sources like vintage and thrift.   Some of the fun clothing alterations Mary Beth taught us were: hemming and altering sleeves, tips for pinning while altering, how to hem a skirt, and more!

EC Altering Women's Ready Made Dresses Anna Marie Kreifels Jane Speece ALTERING Women's Ready-made Dresses-Anna Marie Kreifels, Area Extension Agent (Home Economics) Jane Speece, Extension Specialist (Clothing) Your persona I appearance and comfort wi II be enhanced by a smart-looking, becoming and well fitted dress. If fitted too Author: Anna Marie Kreifels, Jane Speece.   I've been compiling a lot of clothing that I really like that just do not fit. These are a few pieces I'm going to show you how I quickly alter them to fit. Nothing fancy, just basic sewing.

The thing with How To Read A Dress is that it doesn't really teach you how to read a dress. Instead it applies the show don't tell rule and gives you lots of pictures with dry notes (which is, probably, a legitimate thing to do because the title states it's a guide, and we don't expect guides to be more than pictures with dry notes attached). The idea of the book is brilliant, but the book /5. You can buy clothes off the rack and fix them to fit your body. I've been buying the wrong size clothes for years! I buy clothes with missing buttons or broken zippers. Getting great deals off the clearance racks is easy because I know I can make those clothes fit me. This website will help you. Every garment is different. I've altered.
