A wool coat is a significant investment, but you’ll never want to wear it if it doesn’t fit right. This blog post will show you how to stretch a wool coat for a perfect fit.
Step 1: Measure Your Coat
To get the perfect fit for your wool coat, you’ll need to measure it first. To do this, lay the skin flat and measure from the edge of one shoulder to the edge of the other.
You’ll also want to measure around the fullest part of the chest and waist.
Make sure to keep the measuring tape straight while doing this to get an accurate reading.
Step 2: Find the Center of the Coat
This is the easy part. Stand in front of a full-length mirror and pull the coat up.
Pin the center of the back of the coat to your back with one hand, then hold on to each side of the skin and stretch it outwards.
You can loosen it by pulling on one side or both until it feels comfortable if it’s too tight. Be sure to repeat this step on the other side.
Step 3: Stretch the Coat in One Direction
To stretch a wool coat for a perfect fit, it is best to ensure that it is laid out flat and free of wrinkles.
- Next, start stretching the coat in one direction using your hands until it reaches the desired fit.
- The key to getting a perfect stretch is to evenly distribute the pressure throughout the entire length of the coat.
- Finally, make sure not to overstretch or pull on the fabric too hard, as this could cause damage and result in a less than ideal fit.
Step 4: Repeat on Other Sides
The next step is to repeat on the other side. If your coat has a hood, now is the time to put it on and ensure it is positioned correctly.
Put your arms through the sleeves and pull them up to your shoulders. Now tighten the coat’s cuffs so that they are even with your wrists, and make sure that there are no wrinkles in the fabric.
A well-stretched wool coat will always look good and feel comfortable on. We hope this blog post has helped!
