For banksmiranda

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Banksmiranda, This might be useful to the whole board so I decided to ask it here. Shortening the sleeves seems simple enough except when I want to move the gauntlet up when shorting the sleeve. I taken apart a poly/cotton shirt I have lying around. Could you inform us with any guidelines? Also, my mom has a relatively decent Singer sewing machine. What accessories should I get for it if I was to say redo the arm holes to tighten then up so to sew a dart at the back of the shirt? And where would I find these parts? Do you know of a good place online or in NYC? -HitMan009

You may need to, depending on how much you shorten the sleeve, extend the slit which accomodates the placket at the bottom of the sleeve.  You probably don't need any special accessories for this particular project, but for shirts in general a felling foot and rolled-hem foot are useful.  I find A Great Notion http://www.agreatnotion.com in Canada to have a pretty good selection. I imagine that you could go to a variety of places in the Garment District in NYC and find most anything you need.  Sew True http://www.sewtrue.com (based in NYC) seems to have a pretty good selection - I've bought stuff from them a few times.
