About Judith aka genie

I live in a beautiful part of the world - Runaway Bay at the Gold Coast, Australia. My son Daniel and his wife Amalia live not too far away, so that I get to see my 3 grandsons on a regular basis. Having operated 6 clothing alteration shops, I find working from home works for me. I am kept busy with clients, plus as a self publisher I personally complete all orders for my book Clothing Alteration Secrets Revealed. My goal is to help empower other people to feel confident altering ready-made clothes. I built this website with the advise of Morteza - developer of the Geelus POS software. Sewing is my passion through the medium clothing alterations. Happy altering, Judith Turner

Bikini top too tight

A common problem for a lot of people.  Obviously where to make it bigger will depend on the style.  But this one was easy because I could add wide elastic to the back. You don't need much elastic, and if you don't have any that is the right width, join some together by butting them up against each other and zig zagging together. Happy altering Judith

Shorten cardigan jacket sleeves

This jacket has suede front and back panels, but ribbed knitted sleeves.  I had to shorten cardigan jacket sleeves even though the sleeve was knitted.  I do have some videos of cardigans being shortened, and this is no different, except that I used a wider and firmer stretch lace. Need to know more?  Click on the video and you will see how I altered this one. Happy altering Judith

Decorate shirt fabric strip

Do you have plain shirts in the cupboard and you really would love to dress them up a little.  This video will give you one idea to change the appearance of a plain shirt into something else. Have fun with this one.  Love to see your examples below in comments. Happy altering Judith
