So I spent the past week learning how to tailor suits. I've been tailoring vests and socks all year for practice, and recently t-shirts. Besides plumbing this is last household skill I haven't learned. Let me tell you on thing about tailoring suite:
it's a motherfucker
Here's what I ended up with.
I took the whole inside liner off and pinched in the breadth of the suit to give it a tighter cut, I also took off the sleeves, trimmed the shoulders and reattatched. Took up the cuffs to midthumb. The vest was no problem, just attatched new buttons.
The pants were easy, just brought up the leg and folded it over giving it a halfbreak.I was gonna take apart the waistband but I have no clue how to do that without fucking up pockets.
So there's that. I'm not going to write a tutorial because honestly all the YouTube videos and websites weren't dick compared to just getting in it and turning it inside out. Locate the seems and strings and are where they go and how to put them back in.
My best experience was buying a couple suits for 20-30 each and taking them apart. I hope to figure out how to make jeans from scratch. I'm not sure what denim even is.
