• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

Can a wool overcoat be let out a bit?

Recently thrifted a really awesome SB navy wool overcoat that I honestly couldn't pass up on even though it didn't fit right. Got it for 4.99 so I figured it wouldn't be a huge loss if it wasn't fixable. It fits flawless everywhere except right around the navel area. Needs to be let out about an inch to reduce the pulling and it'd be perfect. Is this possible to do? If so, any opinions on where I could take it to get it done in the Chicagoland area?

It should be possible if there's spare cloth in the seams to let out.
