Shirts!
Hey techdragon! I have some shirts I wish to be taken in; I saved them through my great thinening... Are you available? Also, I'm hoping to have a nice shirt made from some neat fabric I used for my macbook sleeve. How much fabric do you need for something like that? Can we talk price and time line too?

I am available. :)

Fabric for a shirt (depend on your slimness...)
* short/long sleeve = 3 - 3.25 yards

Alteration are usually by the piece, not by the hour... usually $5-10 per item depending on the amount of work.
Complete items are by the hour - nice shirt takes about 3 hours (at $8 - $10 per hour depending on complexity). Plus add in notions (buttons, interfacing, thread, etc)... usually about $5-$10 total.

Timeline = 1-2 weeks

Awesome. I've got two shirts I'd like taken in. I think I'm a yard short on the favric to make a shirt. I'll stop by Jo Anne's and see if they have more if I ever get out today.

So, say I lose more weight. Would it be difficult to take the shirts in again? I've held on to these shirts for two years. :) I like them.

Hooray!

Would it be difficult to take the shirts in again?

Not if I keep that in mind... it is really just a shifting of seams. It is much easier to continually make something smaller than to make it bigger after taking it in.
