T SHIRT ALTERATIONS

T-SHIRT ALTERATIONS

I DO QUIET A BIT OF T-SHIRT ALTERATIONS, WHITHER IT’S T-SHIRT HEMMING, SLEEVE SHORTENING OR TAKING THEM UP.

T-SHIRT ALTERATIONS
ADD SOME CURVES TO MATCH YOUR CURVES!!!

LADIES, WE ALL KNOW MOST T-SHIRTS ARE CUT STRAIGHT ON THE SIDES AND LET’S FACE IT…WOMEN HAVE CURVES. SO T-SHIRT ALTERATIONS CAN INCLUDE ADDING SOME CURVES TO YOUR T-SHIRTS!

WE CAN ALSO CUT THEM OFF FOR A SHORTER HEM LINE OR MAKE THEM INTO BELLY SHIRTS. I HAVE THE MACHINE TO DO IT AND THE KNOW-HOW TO GET IT DONE FOR YOU!!!

T-SHIRTS OR ANY OTHER KNIT MATERIALS NEED A SPECIAL SEWING MACHINE TO DO THE ALTERATIONS PROPERLY. YOU NEED A COVER-STITCH MACHINE AND I HAVE ONE.

T-SHIRT ALTERATIONS
MOST T-SHIRTS ARE A STRAIGHT CUT.

I THINK I’M THE ONLY ONE IN BURLINGTON THAT HAS ONE. MANY PEOPLE SAY THEY HAVE CALLED ALL OVER TOWN AND NO ONE THEY CALLED HAD ONE.

I HAD SO MANY CALLS FOR T-SHIRTS AND KNIT FABRICS I BOUGHT THE MACHINE SO I COULD DO THEM RIGHT. TO SEE WHAT I CAN DO WITH OTHER TYPES OF KNIT SHIRTS OR TOPS CLICK HERE.

IF YOU ARE JUST FINDING MY SITE, I DO OTHER ALTERATIONS AS WELL SO CLICK HERE.

T-SHIRT ALTERATIONS OR OTHER KNITS

THIS IS THE UNDERSIDE OF A COVER-STITCH SEAM SO IT STRETCHES.

T-SHIRTS ARE MADE WITH KNIT FABRIC, THAT IS WHY THEY STRETCH. THE SEAMS IN KNIT FABRICS MUST STRETCH TOO.

YOU CAN HEM KNITS WITHOUT A COVER-STITCH MACHINE, BUT WITHOUT IT THE SEAMS WILL NOT STRETCH LIKE THE FACTORY SEAMS AND THE THREAD WILL BREAK SO THE SEAMS COME APART AND RAVEL THE FIRST TIME THE GARMENT GETS OVERLY STRETCHED.

T-SHIRT ALTERATIONS
NORMAL T-SHIRT HEM.

THAT BEING SAID, IF YOU HAVE T-SHIRTS OR ANY GARMENTS MADE OF KNIT FABRIC THEY NEED TO BE SEWN ON A COVER-STITCH MACHINE SO THE SEAMS WILL STRETCH LIKE THE FABRIC DOES. OTHER THAN T-SHIRTS, THIS INCLUDES KNIT TOPS, PANTS, SWEATS, YOGA PANTS OR ANY OTHER KNITS.

WHEN IN DOUBT ABOUT WHAT KIND OF SEAM YOU NEED, LOOK AT THE FACTORY HEM TO SEE IF IT LOOKS LIKE A T-SHIRT HEM!
IF YOU SEE THIS TYPE HEM OR SEAM IT’S PROBABLY A KNIT FABRIC.

IF YOU ARE IN DOUBT, LOOK AT THE SEAMS IN YOUR CLOTHES FROM THE FACTORY AND IF IT HAS A SEAM LIKE THE ONES IN THE PICTURES THEN IT IS PROBABLY KNIT AND SHOULD BE RESEWN WITH A COVER-STITCH MACHINE.

FABRICS SEWN WITH A STRAIGHT STITCH (like jeans) CAN BE SEWN SAFELY ON ANY MACHINE. LIKE I SAID EARLIER, YOU CAN SEW KNIT WITH A REGULAR MACHINE BUT YOU HAVE TO DO TWO OR THREE PASSES TO MAKE IT LOOK RIGHT AND IT WILL STILL PULL OUT A LOT OF TIMES IF IT IS OVERLY STRETCHED.

T-SHIRT ALTERATIONS OR ANY KNIT FABRIC ALTERATIONS REALLY NEED A COVER-STITCH MACHINE!
