i want to show you my way of sewing sacky into fitting clothes.
It`s quite easy that way and no real skills are needed
-i guess no tailor would do it that way , but it works for me :o)
the hole thing takes about 15-20minutes
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: You'll Need
thread in matching colour
sewing machine (prefered) or needle
Step 2: Turn the Clothes Inside Out
turn your sweater / trousers or whatever you want to change inside out.
now dress yourself with it.
Step 3: Pin It Baby
take all the surplus cloth in one hand and pin it with the other - see the pictures to get an idea!
Make sure that the cloth is aligned - hard to explain - hope you get what i mean ;)
try to take the same amount on both sides - symmetry is what you want.
Step 4: Turn Back and Check
now carefully turn back the garment and dress yourself with it.
check in the mirror if you have pinned it nicely and fittig
Move yourself in every direction to make sure it's not too tight.
If you feeling comfortable you're ready for the next step - if not change the pins until it's fine
Step 5: Sew
not it's time to sew - turn it inside out again
easiest and fastest with a sewing machine of course - if you don't have one it'll work fine with a needle
Simply sew along the pins - thats it.
now you can choose to cut the excess cloth or simply leave it as it is - maybe you plan a pregnancy in that case leave it ;)
yap done :)
