If you're interested in DIY suit jacket alterations, then follow this series of videos that will show you how.

In this How to Sew: Jacket Alteration Part 2 sewing video, Mary Beth Temple will show you how to hem a jacket sleeve.

The jacket she is working with has decorative buttons, but she can pop the buttons off in order to shorten the sleeve.

There will be a small overlap in the sleeve from where the buttons were, but it will look good with a little sewing ingenuity. That's why it's important to get lessons from someone with so much experience. Nothing is a surprise!

You will cross stitch by hand where you hem the sleeve. If you missed the other part of the exclusive video series, you can check out the introduction and Part 1 and then move onto Part 3 and the jacket reveal.
