How To Shorten Sweater Sleeves

"Learn how to shorten sweater sleeves that are too with just a sewing machine. Make sleeves the right length and keep the nice ribbed cuff. Sometimes you find the perfect sweater, but the sleeves are just a little too long. I do not often have this problem, but I used to work at a tailor shop and was often doing this alteration. It is hard to find ready-to-wear clothing to fit you when you are not an average person. This is a quick and simple way to shorten the sleeves of a sweater and keep it looking nice with the ribbed cuff. You do need a sewing machine to do this clothing alteration, but you do not need a serger."
