Why learning alterations techniques is beneficial to any sewist?

When I first learned to sew in my early 20’s, I was able to work a sewing machine and knew how to put a garment together from scratch by using a pattern.  But, this was not a fast or easy process! I struggled with garment fit, adding zippers, and overall construction seemed like a jigsaw puzzle with missing piecesOnce I learned the skills of altering and repairing ready-made clothing, all my other sewing tasks excelled!  Because I knew how to replace a pant zipper in under half an hour, I would use the same technique to insert a zipper when making pants.  Lined suit sleeves in a jacket were no longer a mystery to me and all my garments finally fit!

Clothing alteration and repairs are an investment!

As a society that is working to get away from throw-away and disposable clothing, having the sewing skills of clothing alteration and repair is beneficial.  Not only will you be able to extend the life of your well-loved garments by adjusting the waist when needed, repair your child’s winter coat, or fix that hole in your husband’s favorite shirt, you will save money in the process.
