Alterations & Embroidery
At THREADS the work of alterations is not fun but it is necessary, challenging, and rewarding. Great satisfaction comes in taking a garment apart and discovering how a particular manufacturer or designer created it. The challenge comes not in taking the piece apart but in putting it back together. A smart seamstress will take only one side apart at a time to be on the safe side. Seeing a garment from the outside in can be frustrating. It is kind of like taking the icing off a cake without damaging the cake so you can make it look better with some changes. It can be very delicate work.
