KNIT PANTS ALTERATIONS

KNIT PANTS ALTERATIONS

T SHIRT ALTERATIONS
THIS IS THE COVER STITCH MACHINE I HAVE IN MY SHOP.

I AM NOW DOING KNIT PANTS ALTERATIONS! EVERYTHING FROM HEMMING THEM TO REPLACING CUFFS ON SWEAT PANTS AND I CAN EVEN TAKE THEM UP IF THEY ARE TOO BIG OR JUST TIGHTEN UP THE LEGS FOR A SLIMMER FIT.

NOW I HAVE A COVER-STITCH MACHINE THAT DOES THE SPECIAL STRETCH STITCH THAT KNIT PANTS ALTERATIONS REQUIRE SO THEY WILL STRETCH AND NOT TEAR OR RAVEL, SO NO MATTER THE KNIT FABRIC (EXCEPT SOME SWEATERS) I CAN DO THE NECESSARY ALTERATIONS TO MAKE THEM FIT PERFECTLY.

KNIT ALYERATIONS
THESE CUFFS ARE KNITTED ONTO THE SWEATER AND THERE IS NOTHING I CAN DO TO THEM.

IF YOU HAVE A HOOD SWEATER OR OTHER THINNER TYPE KNIT LIKE THAT I CAN, USUALLY, SEW IT UP OR ALTER IT…IT’S THE THICK SWEATERS LIKE THIS ONE I CANT DO MUCH WITH. SORRY!!!

USUALLY WITH SWEATERS LIKE THIS THE CUFFS ARE KNITTED ONTO THE GARMENT WHEN THE SWEATER IS MADE SO I CAN’T REMOVE OR REPLACE IT. ALSO THERE IS USUALLY NO SIDE SEAMS TO TAKE UP OR LET OUT.

AND JUST SO YOU KNOW…IF YOU GET A HOLE IN A THICK KNIT SWEATER IT HAS TO BE REPAIRED BY SOMEONE WHO DOES HAND KNITTING. SORRY, I DON’T DO THAT.

KNIT ALTERATIONS…AND THE NEEDED MACHINES TO DO THEM CORRECTLY!!!

THIS IS MY BLIND-STITCH HEMMER FOR HEMMING KNIT PANTS.

THE COVER-STITCH MACHINE DOES THE STITCH THAT YOU SEE ON THE HEM AND SLEEVES OF T-SHIRTS. IF YOUR KNIT PANTS HAVE THAT KIND OF HEM OR SEAMS I CAN REPLACE THEM WITH A FACTORY TYPE SEAM.

WHEN IT COMES TO KNIT FABRICS AND ALTERATIONS, MANY KNIT PANTS HAVE A BLIND-STITCH HEM OR A SERGED SEAM INSTEAD OF THE COVER-STITCH TYPE HEM OR SEAM.

THIS IS MY 4 THREAD SERGER. IT DOES THE STRETCH STITCH IN KNIT SEAMS.

I HAVE THE SERGER AND THE BLIND-STITCH MACHINE AS WELL SO NO MATTER WHAT YOU NEED I HAVE THE RIGHT MACHINE TO DO THE JOB!!!
