Making clothes for yourself can be a little chanllenging at times. Especially when you want to make alterations and cant fit and pin at the same time. I am so happy I ran into the online article in Threads Magazine that offers an effective solution on a budget for the problem. There is a duct tape version and one that uses paper tape. I think I will solicit help from the hubby and try the duct tape one, since I am assuming I could probably take that with easily, when we move next year.
