Has anyone here ever altered a linen sweater?
I have an Inis Meain pub jacket and the body is tad wide...I want to take in the waist but wonder if that would be wise. While I am asking what about shortening the sleeves?
Would it be wise given that it is a linen cardigan and should be loose anyways. I did size up on this sweater though FWIW.
I haven't had linen knits altered, but I've had wool knits done.
It depends on the design, what you need done, and whether or not if you care if there's a seam in the end. An alteration can be via machine or hand linking. The latter is a bit more difficult, but possible. I prefer hand linking when possible because I think the finishing is nicer.
I can send you some recommendations to places later. Need to answer your PM too.
