A new friend from school had me take in a few shirts for him. Since he's a trim, athletic fellow, the reduction in the body of the shirts is a good step toward looking better. I haven't seen him wearing one yet, but he said he was pleased with the work.
Since the machine is out, I think I'll hem some pants that have been too long for far too long. I believe my wife needs to do the same for some of her own pants.
