I was so happy to find your webpage today. I have a home business doing wedding and formal alterations, but my sister brought me an expensive jacket and wanted the sleeves shortened two inches. It has vented sleeves with buttons, and I had no confidence! Your web page explained perfectly how to do it, and the jacket looks great. Thank you! I'll be coming back when I have more questions. Yours is the best website I've found for help with common alterations.
Thanks so much for your kind words, Vicki. I love to hear success stories!!
I think you saw the instructions on the blog entry for shortening sleeves.
If anyone else is interested, the page Vicki is referring to is here.
I actually have a full blown web page coming soon that has the steps in chart form with the yellow "table" format. I'm so glad you could get the whole idea from what I've written so far.
Stay tuned :) I'll keep your email address and let you know when it's posted.
