• 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

When you buy pants do you buy them your exact waiste size? or do you go up 1? for ex, I'm a size 34 waiste but I buy 36, preferably 35 but those are very rare to come by....

I have to try them on, because the measurements are not reliable, and it depends on where I wear them what size I will need. For example in a high-rise suit trouser I sometimes get a 31, whereas in a low-slung pair of jeans or casual pants I sometimes need a 34. Since I learned how to alter the waist of pants (really easy actually) I have just been getting them a bit big and fitting them exactly.

J, If you don't mind sharing? How do you alter the waiste? or are you a tailor? there are a few pairs of jeans I have that are big because I lost weight and I really don't want to get rid of them?
