Vitale Barberis Canonico has some YouTube clips. One of them he tells why he thinks hand sewing sleeves in the way he does it is better than machine. He is not saying it is wrong to machine it but, he likes his method of hand sewing them in better. There is putting in linings and drawing patterns, etc.

Thanks for posting these CTT. You have them nicely lined up in order. YouTube kept scrambling them after each one I watched. Now I can march through them without repeats.

Great videos! The little button to hold the trouser cuff is a great idea.

Hi Mansie

I looked at the trouser videos you shared. I looked at the shirt videos too. You are right!  Chalk, ruler, measure band, sewing machine (with trousers an overlock) , sharp scissors, an iron, was all he used besides his fingers.  I learned a lot - mostly speeding up.

Thank you for showing them.

This is from the 1978 Irish RTÉ programme: In Good Hands.

There should be a new episode out; a revisit to the Johnson family tailors in Tullow, Carlow.
I havn't yet been able to find it anywhere though...

These show Irish weavers at work:

That's lovely ChiTown Tailor.  

 

Did you notice the article at the bottom about the robber stopped by his own sagging pants?  I expect he could be helped by Mansie.

 

I do hope Mansie can get back on the forum with his own avatar.

Excellent video. It's nice seeing a provincial tailor shop rather than the city establishments. When you compare this to the art-directed videos of 'tailors at work' you get today, there's a difference. Some of the cutting-out looks rougher - not always using the full blade length - and the chalked-out pattern was smudged. They used buttonhole scissors, not hammer and chisel; a treadle sewing machine too.

 

It's good to see outside of the stage-managed version of tailoring, with cutters dressed to the nines (as if they all ever were). As a nipper I remember a lot of shops (of various trades) like that one.

I agree. Does anyone have a guide or insight on how exactly this is done? I've been looking through the forums and online but haven't found any mention of buttoned trouser cuffs.

You need to mark where the button will be on the seams. You will have to leave a gap in the seams (fasten off both ends) that acts as a buttonhole.

Thank you. Are the cuffs finished off the same way or are they folded differently when fastened with a button?

Why do you and some other people think this is better than tacking the cuffs?
