Posts Tagged ‘altering clothes blocking to increase size of jacket’
Blocking is something that can be used to increase the size of clothes. If you have a teeshirt, dress or trousers that are too small, a separate panel can be added in a contrast colour. I am in the process of using blocking to increase the size of an animal print jacket a friend bought me. It was the only size, but was too small, so I purchased some black fur and will create sections to the side back panels beginning at the armhole, and I will unpick the top section of the sleeve and place a block down the top of the sleeve. I will attach a video when completed.
