A new Alteration Page is Live

I have written a L-o-n-g page on how to alter the waist in a pair of khaki pants. It includes instructions for adding a seam to the waistband. You can use these same directions to take in the waistband in a pair of jeans. Check it out at and see what you think!


  1. Usually I panic when I read alteration instructions - they are so technical and heartless and I just feel that I must be so non tech & too hopeless to follow them. Yours are different; they are sympathetic, human, and you understand that not everyone was born with a sewing machine reflexes in their genes. It's a pleasure reading you, I hope you expand & maybe write a book. Thanks!

  2. Thanks so much for your kind words. I'm glad to get your feedback and to be able to help. I will keep at it. A book is certainly in the future!

  3. I bought your video on "Take in Jeans Waist". It was very good and well done. You make it look so easy. I thank you for it and looking forward to some more. This was my first time on your site and I am going to be back. I have wanted to do alteration and now I think your site will be a big help. Thank you again.

  4. Thanks for stopping by. I'm glad you like the video. I started with an alteration that used to be intimidating to me. I'm glad it gives you confidence to do more. If you need help with something you can click on the "Contact Me" button over on the left column and drop me a note. Thanks for your kind words and I hope to hear from you again :)
