A New Webpage is Live at

Topstitched or top stitched...whatever floats your boat!
This next webpage explains how to shorten a hem that's been stitched on other words, it shows, on purpose.

The best example of this is the hem on khakis. Check your closet. I bet you've got plenty of these casual slacks.

This particular page has an added twist. The alteration is really quick because I don't have to rip out the old stitching. I also use no pins here.

So check it out. Let me know what you think. Top Stitched Hem Instructions

    I ran across your site while surfing for -I forget now! I recently opened a shop on mainstreet after working from my home for 7 or 8 years. There are always little things that we can pick up from others! Great site, very solid info. My favorite thing is hearing that I am not the only one who has to rip and redo, rip and redo! Always when it seemed to have gone so well the first time.

  3. Thanks, Lisa. Feel free to chime in any time. You're right, we are always learning from each other! Where are you located?

  4. Knowledge sharing is very good human being thanks for the post...
