As I mentioned in “My Story“, I started this business to help other women who are amputees and want to wear jeans and other attire that looks good and makes them feel good about themselves. At the start, I had to learn quite a bit about how particular articles of clothing are made so that I could make the necessary adjustments to fit an amputee’s specific needs. I’ve included a few photographs of some of my “equipment” that I use on every clothing order.
I buy wholesale jeans to keep the cost low for you. Once I have the jeans you’d like to purchase, I take a seam ripper and by hand I carefully open up the seam to the measured point. After that, I use a serger to clean up the raw edges. A serger makes a more professional and durable seam than a standard sewing machine, especially for fabrics that have stretch. The threads lock around the seam to prevent fraying, and the machine also cuts off the seam allowance as it sews. Sergers are very fast and make sewing knits much easier.
Once I am done with that, I press the zipper and also the inseam making sure the zipper is exactly where it’s supposed to be placed before sewing it together.
