Recently had a friend with a cheerleading daughter to ask me to do an alteration on a uniform.
Then more cheerleaders needed help.
Alteration has never been a "fun" thing for me so it would normally not land on a Friday post.
However, I've learned to say no to alterations that require reconstruction.
That's to say to take apart and put back together, especially if I can't put back the original look.
But, these jobs required very simple tasks.
So it was fun and rewarding to see the girls happy with their better fitting uniforms.
A need of a tighter waist,
Involved only moving a button.
Should have had them watch me sew on a button?
After I moved the button, I realized I should have moved the other button
so if there is growth during the season
she can use the next button. Oh well.

I used a double row, because I had to take out a stretch stitch from another skirt
and it was not easy.
So, I altered realizing these stitches might be taken out in the future,
yet sturdy enough to allow for stretching and this seemed to work.
I know four girls that are ready for the season.
